Here’s the Official List of 2023 Holidays in the Philippines
As you plan out the rest of 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 strategically plan those leaves from work.
The list ahead, made official by President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. through Proclamation no. 90, s. 2022, rounds up the regular holidays, special non-working holidays, and special working holidays for the year.
Malacañang, under the new administration, made these official in August 2022. These are as follows:
2023 Regular Holidays
New Year’s Day
Day of Valor (Araw ng Kagitingan)
National Heroes Day
2023 Special Non-Working Holidays
EDSA People Power Revolution Anniversary
Ninoy Aquino Day
All Saints’ Day
Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary
Last Day of the Year
2023 Additional Special Non-Working Holiday
The President, meanwhile, is slated to issue separate proclamations for two other observances: Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha. The exact dates of these Islamic holidays will be determined in alignment with the Islamic calendar.
