Magi-isyu ang Malacañang ng proclamation na magde-deklara ng national holidays para sa Eid’l Fitr at Eid’l Adha pagkatapos malaman ang mga aproksimang petsa ng Islamic holidays.

Sa ngayon, anim pa lamang ang long weekends na pwede mo i-look forward: Ang New Year, EDSA Anniversary, Holy Week, National Heroes Day, All Saints’ Day at Rizal Day. Ang New Year, Holy Week, Rizal Day weekends lamang ang lagpas tatlong araw ang holidays.

Maaari mo dagdagan ang family vacations mo sa pamamagitan ng pag-file ng leave sa December 23, pero malay mo, baka i-deklara din itong holiday ng gobyerno, kaya’t abangan mo rin ito. Maaari ka rin mag-file ng leave of absence sa mga Lunes na tatapat sa Chinese New Year at Araw ng Kagitingan para madagdagan ang 2019 long weekends mo.

Ang long weekends at konti at maiikli. May ilang regular holidays din na tumatapat ng Miyerkules, katulad ng Labor Day, Independence Day at Ninoy Aquino’s Day. Ang Bonifacio Day ay Sabado, samantalang ang The Feast of the Immaculate Conception ay Linggo.

FACT CHECK: Hindi NATIONAL HOLIDAYS ang January 2.

May fake news na kumakalat na extra holiday daw ang January 2. Maging mapagmatyag sa mga nababasa online at huwag basta maniwala sa mga nababasa, nang sa gayon ay mas makuha mo ang mga tamang impormaysyon. Marami na ngayon ang mga manloloko online, kaya dapat ay i-check mabuti ang sources na nakikita ninyo. h
