Holidays to look forward to in 2013

Make sure to plan your vacations around these dates, FNites! By Marianne Salazar

2012 was a great time for Filipinos in terms of vacation time. We enjoyed a total of seven long weekends this year, giving us plenty of opportunities to go out of town or to spend quality time with loved ones. Now that we are inching toward the last few weeks of 2012, it would be great to check out the holidays the coming year has to offer.

It seems the Philippines will get fewer long weekends in 2013 in accordance with Proclamation 459. Maundy Thursday and Good Friday will fall on March 28 and 29, while National Heroes Day is set on August 26, the last Monday of August. The other lucky holidays are the EDSA Revolution Anniversary on February 25 and Rizal Day on December 30, both of which will fall on a Monday.

Malacañang also declared November 2 and December 24 as “additional special (non-working) days” so that people can celebrate All Saints Day and Christmas properly.

The dates of the Islamic feasts of Eid’l Fitr and Eidul Adha are yet to be announced. They are to be recommended by the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos “in accordance with the Islamic calendar (Hijra) or the lunar calendar, or upon Islamic astronomical calculations, whichever is possible or convenient.”

Scroll down below to see the full list of 2013 holidays:
