Time flies so fast! 2018 is here!
It’s time to look forward to a new year filled with exciting and new opportunities.
Many months ago, the Duterte administration has released a list of regular and special holidays for 2018, through Proclamation No. 269 series of 2017.
The dates for the observance of Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha will be issued at a later time.
Note that many of these holidays can be moved, according to Republic Act 9492. So, mark your calendars and check back regularly (government websites and Facebook pages) to avoid problems with your planned schedules.
