« on: February 17, 2013, 09:04:37 PM »



Malacanang announced that there are 4 long weekends for 2013. This is according to Proclamation 459 signed by President Aquino declaring regular holidays, special non-working holidays and special holiday for schools next year.


Unlike in 2012, Chinese New Year is not included as a special non-working holiday by President Benigno Aquino III in his Proclamation 459, which lists all legal holidays for 2013. Deputy Palace spokesperson Abigail Valte explained that there is no need to do that anymore since Chinese New Year 2013 falls on February 10, which is Sunday.
