Philippine Holidays List for 2013 is probably one of the most anticipated proclamation from the office of the president that every Filipino workforce wanted to know when the current year is about to end. This is for a number of reasons. It could be because Filipinos plan to have long bonding moments with their family. Young professionals anticipate Philippine Holidays because they are planning to have an out of town trip with their colleague, and sometimes with their special someone. Others wanted to know how many long weekends there would be for the coming year so they can schedule of getting promo fares from international airlines. Lastly, others who have tedious job loads, all they wanted to know is to have a rest day or maybe as simple as 13 hours of sleep.
