#WalangPasok: Dec 26, Jan 2 are special non-working days
MANILA, Philippines – Malacañang has declared December 26, 2016 and January 2, 2017, both Mondays, as special non-working days nationwide.
In Proclamation No. 117 signed on Tuesday, December 13, the Palace said it seeks to "give the people full opportunity to celebrate the holidays with their families and loved ones."
It added that "a longer weekend promotes domestic tourism and enables employers to plan their work schedules effectively and efficiently, resulting in improved productivity."
Below is a copy of Proclamation No. 117.
