Special Non Working Holidays

Yahoo! Special Non Working Holidays this coming Christmas week! December 25 and 27, 2010 are regular holidays; while 24 and 31 are special non-working days.

This was learned from Secretary Hermino "Sonny" Coloma of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), in a text message, after Executive Secretary Paquito "Jojo" N. Ochoa, Jr. cleared him to make public the December holidays per Proclamation No. 1841 issued by former President Gloria M. Arroyo on July 21, 2009.

According to the proclamation, aside from December 25 ? Christmas day, December 27 is also a regular holiday as the nearest Monday to December 30 ? Rizal Day.

In the same proclamation, December 24 was also declared as additional special non-working day in the country to "foster closer family ties and enable our countrymen to observe Christmas more meaningful".

With the long weekend, the government expects that this would help strengthen family relationships, renew ties for a longer period of time, and promote domestic tourism.

As the last day of year 2010, December 31 is also a special non-working day. source
