Philippine Holidays for the Year 2013

Written By Jane Miranda on Thursday, September 6, 2012 | Thursday, September 06, 2012

REGULAR HOLIDAYS, SPECIAL (NON-WORKING) DAYS, AND 
SPECIAL HOLIDAY (FOR ALL SCHOOLS) FOR THE YEAR 2013
MalacaƱang has released Saturday, September 1, which had recently been signed by President Benigno Aquino III, and which lists the special and regular non-working public holidays in the Philippines for the calendar year 2013.
 
Meanwhile, the observance of Eid’l Fitr and Eidul Adha will be declared as national holidays “after the approximate dates of the Islamic holidays have been determined in accordance with the Islamic calendar (Hijra) or the lunar calendar, or upon Islamic astronomical calculations,” the proclamation read. But it did not include a public holiday for Chinese New Year, despite House Bill 1072, which passed last month.

According to deputy presidential spokesperson Valte: "There is no need to declare the Chinese New Year for 2013 a holiday or nonworking day because it will fall on a Sunday".
