Philippine Holidays 2011

Fellow Filipinos can now start their travel plans after the Philippine Holidays of 2011 was relased yesterday.


Filipinos can now start their travel plans for next year as President Noy Aquino signed Proclamation No. 84 - declaring the regular holidays, special non-working days, and special holiday for the year 2011.
  1. Regular Holidays
    • New Year’s Day – January 1 (Saturday)
    • Araw ng Kagitingan – April 9 (Saturday)
    • Maundy Thursday – April 21
    • Good Friday – April 22
    • Labor Day – May 1 (Sunday)
    • Independence Day – June 12 (Sunday)
    • National Heroes Day – August 29 (Last Monday of August)
    • Bonifacio Day – November 30 (Wednesday)
    • Christmas Day – December 25 (Sunday)
    • Rizal Day – December 30 (Friday)
  2. Special (Non-Working) Days
    • Ninoy Aquino Day – August 21 (Sunday)
    • All Saints Day – November 1 (Tuesday)
    • Last Day of the Year – December 31 (Saturday)
  3. Special Holiday (for all schools)
    • EDSA Revolution Anniversary – February 25 (Friday)
The dates for the Islamic holidays Eid’l Fitr and Eidul Adha, both are also national holidays will still be determined by the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) in accordance with the Islamic or lunar calendar.

I am one those who are glad that President Aquino will not be moving the day of commemorating/celebrating these holidays of 2011. It is hard enough to inculcate the meaning of these holidays. Changing the days of no work, all the more lessens the relevance of these dates to our culture.

But for those who already have plans, I pray and hope they will include touring the Philippines in their travel itineraries for 2011..
