August 2012 Holidays in the Philippines – 3 Days

Last July, the Philippines had no holiday. Employees had no break except for the usual two-day rest day every week. But this August, the anticipated holidays are drawing close.

For those who are not aware, the first declared holiday is on Monday, August 20. The Muslims will be celebrating Eidul Fitr, the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. The following day, August 21, the nation will be observing Ninoy Aquino Day.

Lastly, on Monday the following week, August 27, the Filipinos will be commemorating our heroes during the National Heroes’ Day. Enjoy the long weekends, dear readers. For those, however, who have work, look forward to your increase in salary on the next pay date. The next holiday will be on October 26, Eidul Adha, feast of sacrifice celebrated by the Muslims.
