August 2011 Holidays in the Philippines

 

 

In the recent years, August is that other month where we have at least 2 long weekends.  This year might not be the case unless President Noy Aquino declares Ninoy Aquino (incidentally his father) Day, which falls on a Sunday, moved to the following Monday.  Very unlikely.

 

August 2011 holiday

August 2011 Philippine Holiday

 

There are two holidays this August 2011:

 

National Heroes Day

August 29, Monday

Regular Holiday

 

 

Ninoy Aquino Day

August 21, Sunday

Special Non-working Holiday

 

If President Aquino doesn’t declare August 22 as a special non-working holiday then we have to be satisfied with only one long weekend in August.

August 29 that falls on a Monday is a regular holiday which means that it will be a non-working day.   

 

*****UPDATE*****  August 5, 2011

 

August 21, 29 and 30 declared as holidays!  Even Aug. 19 too for those in Quezon City!

 

August 19 (Friday) has been declared as a non-working holiday for Quezon City-based employees in commemoration of Quezon City Day.

 

August 21 (Sunday) will be a special non-working holiday in commemoration of Benigno S. Aquino death anniversary, by virtue of Proclamation 84, which brings back the celebration of national holidays on their actual dates.

 

August 29 (Monday) is declared as a holiday throughout the country to celebrate National Heroes Day.

 

August 30 (Tuesday) is likewise declared as a special non-working holiday in commemoration of Eid’l Fit’r (End of Ramadan).

 

HOORAY for the 4-day long weekend!!!  **little dance.  little dance**

    I thought Pnoy will declare August 22 as a holiday since the death anniversary of his father is on 21st of August that’s Sunday, we’ll be happy if he will do so.

    kumuzta ko po pala si mr. Nemesio Dela trinidad kan Planza, San fernando, camarines Sur. naghahapot kaya siya kun nuarin an holiday ta. siring man wish good luck ki baby kong Marianne at sa kanyang nanay na si dangFrance.

  3. Pnoy would get the heart of the masses if he was to declare August 22 as a special non-working holiday. This is also to give time to Honor the Memory of his Father. Don’t think it would leave a good impression on him if he doesn’t, specially now that people are starting to question his capabilities as a leader.
