  • December 8.  This is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and falls on a Tuesday.  It is a Special Non-working Holiday. Since it is a Tuesday you can take leave on Monday and enjoy a 4-day off.
  • December 24 and 25.  Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is a holiday in the Philippines.  These days fall on a Thursday and a Friday which can give you a potential 4-day off or even more.
  • December 30 and 31.  Rizal Day (December 30) and New Year’s Eve are also both Holidays.  With the additional New Year Holiday on January 1, you do have a 5-day off.

If you really want to maximize your holiday and your work is from Monday to Friday, what we recommend is to possibly take a day-off on December 28 and 29 (Monday and Tuesday). If you will do this you can have a very long vacation starting from December 24 until January 1 or a total of an 8-day off.
