What about the "local" holidays?  Tina gets days off for crazy things like fiestas.  Catarman has it's own fiesta, and I get that.  But then, there are all the "greater Catarman fiestas" of the barangays on the edges of Catarman.  For each of those, the market workers(minus security) are off and usually all of the "city government".  Crazy how many days off are awarded.  Feels like I'm with a teacher or postal worker in the usa as far as the amount of days off she gets.

              THE PRESIDENT OF THE PHILIPPINES PROCLAMATION NO. 831

Sorry, I didn't post it's entire page! Before the I, BENIGNO S. AQUINO III at the middle of the page, by virtue of the powers vested in me by the Constitution as President of the Philippines, do hereby declare, here are the WHERE ASs, which may explain a few things of the Philippine President's final Proclamation No. 831 for 2015! ??? :o ;)

WHEREAS, Republic Act (RA) No. 9492, dated 24 July 2007, amended Section 26, Chapter 7, Book I of Executive Order (EO) No. 292, also known as the Administrative Code of 1987, by declaring certain days (specific or movable) as special or regular holidays;

WHEREAS, RA No. 9492 provides that holidays, except those which are religious in nature, are moved to the nearest Monday unless otherwise modified by law, order or proclamation;

WHEREAS, RA No. 9849 provides that the Eidul Adha shall be celebrated as a national holiday;

WHEREAS, on 19 February 2015, the Chinese nationals all over the world will celebrate Spring Festival, properly known as the Chinese New Year, which is one of the most revered and festive events celebrated not only in China but also in the Philippines by both Chinese-Filipinos and ordinary Filipinos as well; and the joint celebration is a manifestation of our solidarity with our Chinese-Filipino brethren who have been part of our lives in many respects as a country and as a people; 19 February 2015 may be declared as a special (non-working) day without detriment to public interest;

WHEREAS, the EDSA People Power Revolution, which restored and ushered political, social and economic reforms in the country, serves as an inspiration to Filipinos everywhere as a nation and as a people;

WHEREAS, Saturday, 4 April 2015 falls between Good Friday and Easter Sunday; Black Saturday, falling between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, has been traditionally declared a special (non-working) day throughout the country because the observance of Holy Week is one of our peopleís most cherished traditions and they must be given the full and uninterrupted opportunity to ponder the significance of Holy Week and to properly observe its traditions with religious fervor, without prejudice to public interest;

WHEREAS
, in order to foster closer family ties and enable our countrymen to observe New Year and Christmas more meaningfully, it is but fitting to declare 2 January 2015 (Friday) and 24 December 2015 (Thursday) as additional special (non-working) days throughout the country;
