You'll be getting more long weekends in 2017
Time to start planning those holidays!
(SPOT.ph) When it comes to holidays and non-working days, 2016 disappointed us...a lot! Labor Day fell on a Sunday and Araw ng Kagitingan fell on a Saturday. It was hard for the weekend warriors but tough for those who just wanted a really nice three-day break from work.
Malacañang released the official list of regular and special non-working days for 2017, much to the delight of students and working folks around the country. Aside from the Monday holidays, October 31 is also a non-working day, which means you have two off days in the middle of the week. Time to plan next year's travels!
