A long weekend is awaiting Filipinos before the month of August ends.

According to Proclamation No. 234, August 30, 2011 is confirmed to be a Non-Working Holiday in the Philippines for Eid'l Fitr, the celebration of the end of Ramadan which is the Muslim's holy month of fasting.

August 29, 2011 on the other hand is a regular holiday which is the celebration of the National Heroes Day.

Filipinos will be having a four days of no work or classes from August 27 (Saturday) up until August 30 (Tuesday). However, those who have work or classes during Saturdays will only have three free days.

August 30, 2011 Holiday in the Philippines


It is provided in the Proclamation No. 84 that Islamic holidays like Eid’l Fitr and Eidul Adha will be declared upon determination of the approximate days in the Islamic calendars.

Eid'l Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, which is the Islamic month of fasting. Ramadan, which is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, is believed to be the month when God revealed the first verses of the Qur'an to the Islamic propher, Muhammad.

Ramadan started last August 1, 2011 and is set to end on August 30, 2011.

August 29, 2011 Holiday in the Philippines


The List of Holidays in the Philippines also includes celebration of the National Heroes Day on August 29, 2011.

The National Heroes Day is celebrated every last Monday of the month of August. It is celebrated in order to honor other heroes who are not remembered with their own legal holidays. August is chosen as the month for the celebration because it was during August that most of the revolution happened in 1896.

It was previously celebrated on the last Sunday of August but moved to the last Monday during former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's "holiday economics".

August 22, 2011 is Not Holiday in the Philippines


Another holiday in August is the celebration of Ninoy Aquino Day on August 21, 2011. The List of Holidays in the Philippines provided that Ninoy Aquino Day will be celebrated on its rightful day.

August 22, 2011 which is the Monday after Ninoy Aquino Day will be a regular working day.

eh d wag pumasok ung mga gusto na holiday ung monday.. simple! kung gusto magpahinga eh d magpahinga.. sus!

alam ninyo, para sa mga taong may mga trabaho at napakaraming ginagawa ang isang araw para makapgpahinga ay hindi kalabisang hingin. Lalo na at may pamilya sila. Ang mundo ay hindi perpektong bilog kaya huwag magpadala sa maigting na pagsunod sa ideyalismo. Hindi lahat ng matuwid na daan ay maganda. Minsan ang mas mahirap na daan ay magtuturo ng mas maraming leksyon na magbibigay ng mas maraming karunungan. Para sa mga "workaholic" at walang pakialam makasama ang mga pamilya, kanya kanya lang ng diskarte yan.

dapat maypasok..mabawasan ang subsistence allowance sa mga taga national government agencies.

problem relies on the announcement. i think before aug. 22 was announced as holiday, and then now its not. scheds are messed-up. esp if you book your trip on this day.

Ang holiday ay ang paggunita at pagbibigay ng kaukulang respeto sa isang araw na espesyal - kaya nga walang pasok/trabaho para mas may panaho maicelebrate o maobserba ito.

Bonus na lang yung panahon na makapagpahinga tayo at makapiling ang pamilya (sino ba ang may ayaw dun?) Ngunit sang-ayon ako na ang pagcelebrate ng holiday ay hindi dapat palipat-lipat ng araw, mawawala ang importansya nito pag ganun .. Tayo nga, hindi naman natin nililipat ang birthday natin kada taon na sabado at linggo lamang - mawawala ang kahalagahan ng espesyal na araw na iyon.

So tama lamang, na August 21 ang holiday at hindi 22. Buti na lang ang National Heroes Day ay August 29 at nagkataon na August 30 ang para end sa Ramadan. =)

Opinyon lamang po, maraming salamat.

Phil. Gov't. information said that August 22, 2011 is Not Holiday in the Philippines. So, August 22, 2011 which is the Monday after Ninoy Aquino Day will be a regular working day... Thanks for the information
