PBBM declares Dec. 26 special non-working day for Christmas season

To encourage family bonding and boost tourism, PBBM has declared December 26th a special non-working day for the country. 

President Ferdinand "Bongbong" R. Marcos Jr. issued Proclamation 115, declaring December 26, 2022, a special non-working day in the Philippines. The proclamation aims to encourage citizens to celebrate the holiday with their families and loved ones and boost the country's tourism industry.

In the proclamation, Marcos stated that the extended weekend will encourage families to come together and strengthen their relationships, creating a more productive environment. It is also expected to boost tourism, as individuals take the extra time off to travel and visit family and friends. 

To put the proclamation into effect for the private sector, the Department of Labor and Employment has been instructed to publish the appropriate circular.

In addition to the special non-working day on December 26, the Philippines' list of regular holidays and special non-working days for 2023 was updated recently. 

Proclamation 90, issued on November 11, amended Proclamation 42 and established regular holidays and special non-working days for the following year.

Under Proclamation 90, January 2, 2023, which falls on a Monday, will be an additional special non-working day in recognition of the Filipino tradition of visiting relatives and spending time with family during this occasion.  —iTacloban (Source: OPS)
