Philippine Holidays List (Regular, National, and Special Non-Working Days)

The list of Philippine Holidays for 2019 is probably one of the most anticipated proclamation that Filipinos want to know from the office of the President. The proclamation usually happens on the third quarter of every year for the incoming year’s holiday schedule.

This is for number of reasons. It could be because Filipinos plan to have long bonding moments with their family and special someone.

Young professionals anticipate Philippine Holidays because they may be planning to visit a local tourist destination like Baguio, Tagaytay, or Boracay.

Others wanted to know how many long weekends there would be for the coming year so they can schedule their travel plans. How they are going to avail the promo fares offered by international airline companies for their much awaited out of the country trip with their colleagues and friends.

For those who have tedious job loads, they also wanted to know how many rest days they are going to have to catch up with their needed sleep and to dis-stress. Some would probably want to occasionally disconnect from work to avoid being burnout, and these holidays are their means to do that.

Whatever the reason it may be, I hope you guys enjoy the list of holidays for this year.
