List of 2009 Working and None working Holidays

I'm really curious for this year proclaimed holidays specially the SPECIAL NONE WORKING holidays (^_^) do you want to know those holidays that the MalacaƱang has released?
all you have to do is read...
Proclamation No. 1669 signed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo last December 24 — could still be amended, meaning more "holiday economics" announcements from the administration.

Businessmen, many of whom were surprised when Mrs. Arroyo extended the recent holiday break by adding January 2, 2009 at the last minute, welcomed the list. They urged the government, however, to be more circumspect.

Based on the proclamation, the following are this year’s 2009 regular holidays:

* April 9 (Maundy Thursday);
* April 10 (Good Friday);
* April 6 (the Monday nearest to April 9 which is Araw ng Kagitingan or Day of Valor);
* May 1 (Labor Day);
* June 12 (Independence Day);
* August 31 (National Heroes Day);
* November 30 (Bonifacio Day);
* December 25 (Christmas Day); and
* December 30 (Rizal Day).

The following, meanwhile, are special 2009 non-working days:

* August 21 (Ninoy Aquino Day);
* November 1 (All Saints Day);
* November 2 (additional special non-working day);
* December 24 (additional special non-working day); and December 31.

Mrs. Arroyo, who has justified moving holidays as providing an economic stimulus, said declaring December 24 and November 2 as holidays would strengthen Filipino families and boost domestic tourism.

Meanwhile, a proclamation declaring a national holiday for the observance of the Muslim feast Eid’l Fitr will be issued after the approximate date of the Islamic holiday has been determined in accordance with the lunar calendar.

I will make this post as my reference in all of the holidays mentioned (^_^)
