Here’s the Official List of 2022 Holidays in the Philippines
As you plan out your year, keep these dates in mind
A big part of diving into the year is plotting key events, birthdays, and, of course, official holidays to get a good picture of your calendar. Here, we revisit the announcement made in October last year as we take a good look at 2022. You know the drill: time to take note of your next free days and perhaps strategically plan those leaves from work.
The list ahead, made official by President Rodrigo Duterte’s Proclamation 1236, rounds up the regular holidays, special non-working holidays, and special working holidays for the year. The President, meanwhile, is slated to issue separate proclamations for two other observances, Eid’l Fitr, which just took place, and Eid’l Adha. The exact date of the remaining Islamic holiday, just like the first, has yet to be determined in alignment with the Islamic calendar.
Now, for the full rundown of the 2022 holidays in the Philippines, scroll through.
