Hello, long weekends!

Time to plan out your vacation leaves! The Malacañan has officially released an updated list of holidays and non-working days for 2023, with plenty of long weekends in store.

Following President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s Proclamation No. 90 amending the previously declared holidays, the updated list adjusts several holidays to be observed on the nearest Mondays to “help encourage domestic travel and increase tourism expenditures in the country.”

As Araw ng Kagitingan in 2023 falls on a Sunday, the holiday will be celebrated in April 10, Monday instead. In another case, National Heroes Day will be celebrated on Monday, November 28 instead of Thursday, November 30, to “avail the benefits of a longer weekend.”

See the full list of declared holidays below.
