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.
There are two holidays this August 2011:
National Heroes Day
August 29, Monday
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**
