Here’s the Official List of 2021 Holidays in the Philippines
As you plan out your year, keep these dates in mind
The beginning of the year is a great time to sit down and take a good look at that fresh, new calendar. A big part of this pastime, as fans of journaling would know, is to plot key events, birthdays and, of course, official holidays. You know the drill: it’s time to take note of your next free days and perhaps strategically plan those leaves from work.
This list, made official in August last year by President Rodrigo Duterte’s Proclamation No. 986, rounds up 10 regular holidays and nine special non-working holidays. The President, meanwhile, is slated to issue separate proclamations for two other observances: Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha.
