After the long holiday of 2008 hubby and I are expecting another long holiday for 2009. While watching the late news, Bandila, it was reported that PGMA signed on Christmas Eve Proclamation 1699 to layout holiday schedule for 2009 as follows:

  • The observance of the Araw ng Kagitingan (Day of Valor) on April 9 which is a Thursday, was moved to the nearest Monday which is April 6 making it a 3-day weekend before the Easter break.
  • The four-day Easter holidays from April 9 which is Maundy Thursday, until April 12 which is Easter Sunday.
  • The four regular holidays that will fall on either Friday or Monday which results in a three-day week-end. These are Labor Day on May 1 which falls on a Friday; Independence Day on June 12 which falls on a Friday; National Heroes Day on August 31 which falls on a Monday; and Bonifacio Day on November 30 which falls on a Monday.
