Philippine Holidays 2013, time to plan!!

As early as August, P-Noy has already declared via Proclamation No. 459 the regular holidays and special non-working days for the year 2013. Alas, unlike this year's seven long weekend breaks, 2013 has only four long weekends - - specifically, three 3-day weekends and one 4-day weekend. It would be great if the government can either move the Tuesday holidays (April 9 and August 21) to a Monday.

Here's the regular and special holiday for 2013:

January 1 (Tue) - New Year's Day

February 25 (Mon) - EDSA Revolution Anniversary (only for schools)

March 28 (Thu) - Maundy Thursday
March 29 (Fri) - Good Friday

April 9 (Tue) - Araw ng Kagitingan (Day of Valour)

May 1 (Wed) - Labor Day

June 12 (Wed) - Independence Day

August 21 (Tue) - Niony Aquino Day
August 26 (Mon) - National Heroes Day

November 1 (Fri) - All Saints Day
November 2 (Sat) - Additional special non-working day
November 30 (Sat) - Bonifacio Day

December 25 (Wed) - Christmas Day
December 30 (Mon) - Rizal Day

The national holidays for the observance of Eid'l Fitr and Ediul Adha shall be announced after the approximate dates of the Islamic holidays have been determined with the Islamic calander (Hijira) or the lunar calendar.
