We currently have public holidays for 2016 listed. Scroll down to view.
Public holidays in the Philippines are days off that have been provided for by law (Chapter 7 of the Administrative Code of 1987) and which are observed across the nation.
There are two main types of public holidays in the Philippines:
- Regular holidays
- Special days
Each year the president of the Philippines will make a proclamation regarding the dates and observations of the following year’s public holidays. Though public holidays are defined by the law stated above, the President’s proclamations remove any doubt about dates for a given year. His proclamations also allow for modifications to be made to the list of public holidays for any particular year. The proclamation regarding 2014 dates is no. 655. The proclamation of public holidays for 2015 is no. 831.
