- November 1 (Tuesday) – All Saints' Day
- December 8 (Thursday) – Feast of the Immaculate Concepcion of Mary
Proclamation 1236 declares Feb. 1, 2022 as a special non-working day because Chinese nationals worldwide celebrate Chinese New Year, which is “one of the most revered and festive events celebrated, not only in China but also in the Philippines.”
The proclamation also states that the commemoration of the 36th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution on Feb. 25, 2022, is vital because it “restored democracy and ushered political, social and economic reforms in the country.”
It also provides that Black Saturday, which falls on April 16, 2022, has been traditionally declared as a special non-working day nationwide, in observance of Holy Week that is “one of the most cherished traditions of our predominantly Catholic people.”
Under Proclamation 1236, December 8 of every year is celebrated as a special non-working holiday in the entire country to commemorate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, as provided under Republic Act 10966 signed by Duterte on Dec. 28, 2017.
The proclamation says declaring November 2, December 24, and December 31 as special working days would help the country recover from the adverse economic impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.
The proclamations declaring national holidays for the observance of the Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha will be issued after the approximate dates of the Islamic holidays have been determined, in the accordance with the Islamic calendar or the lunar calendar, or upon Islamic astronomical calculations, whichever is possible or convenient.
Proclamation 1236 must be published in a newspaper of general circulation.
Plan ahead, Juan!
