August 18-21 Long Weekend 2012 - Philippine Holidays

As of writing this post today, I made myself ready for this coming 4-day long weekend in August. Philippine Holidays set the date on August 20, Monday and 21, Tuesday, as non-working holiday throughout the Philippine in respect for the Eid’l Fitr (Feast of Ramadhan) and Ninoy Aquino Day.



Before anything else about the long weekend, I think it is good to start planning your weekends, specially for all working people who's always expecting vacation.

Based on Republic Act No. 9177, "The first day of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic calendar, is hereby declared a national holiday for the observance of Eidul Fitr."

And according to Proclamation No. 295, "states that MalacaƱang will declare holidays for the observance of Eid'l Fitr and Eidul Adha after the approximate dates of the Islamic holidays have been determined in accordance with the Islamic calendar or the lunar calendar."

Last year, President Benigno 'Noynoy' Aquino declared August 30, 2011, as a regular holiday throughout the country in observance of Eid’l Fitr (Feast of Ramadhan).

While in August 21, 2012, Tuesday, it's a "Ninoy Aquino Day," it was declared as regular non-working holiday, according on Proclamation 84.

Meanwhile, another long weekend ahead on August 27, 2012, Monday, declared as regular non-working holiday for the "National Heroes Day", based on Philippine Holidays.
