Nine 2016 holidays fall on weekends

TAGBILARAN CITY, December 28 (PIA)--As if it is a fun spoiler for the holiday seekers, 2016 opens with 20 0r so no work days, but most of the declared holidays actually fall on either Saturday or Sunday, which to some, is already a rest day. 

To date, at least nine of the holidays are on a Saturday or Sunday, seemingly defeating the declaration, them being rest days as weekends.

For the country's regular holidays, April 9 Araw ng Kagitingan is on a Saturday, May 1 Labor Day happens on a Sunday, June 12 Independence Day and December 25 all fall on a Sunday and are already fitted during weekends. 

For special non working days, March 26 is Black Saturday while August 21 Ninoy Aquino Day falls on a Sunday.

As to additional special (non-working) days, January 2 falls on a Saturday, which has been declared Day after the New Year while the Day before Christmas, December 24 which has been declared a holiday, falls on a Saturday. December 31, on the other hand, the Last Day of the Year is on a Saturday. 

Malacanang is still to declare Eid'l Fit'r and Edi'l Adha; tow of the Muslim holidays which the country now commemorates. These holidays are actually dependent on the Islamic lunar Calendar and would need the Muslim council's determined date prior to the declaration. 

The country's regular holidays are January 1 (Friday) New Year's day, March 24 (Maundy Thursday), March 25 (Friday) Good Friday, August 29 (Monday) National Heroes Day, November 30 (Wednesday) Bonifacio Day
and December 30 (Friday) Rizal Day.

As to Special Non-Working Days, these are February 8 (Monday) Chinese New Year, February 25 (Thursday) EDSA People's power revolution Anniversary, and November 1 (Tuesday) All Saint's Day. 

By Proclamation 1105, Malacanang has also declared Additional Special (Non-Working) Days on October 31 (Monday) Day before All Saints Day, other than the dates falling on either Saturday or Sunday as enumerated earlier. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
