The list of regular holidays and unique non-working days for 2023 was made public by Malacanang on Tuesday.

For 2023, the following days have been designated as regular holidays and exceptional occasions:

Standard Holidays

New Year’s Day is January 1 (Sunday).

Sunday, April 9 is Araw ng Kagitingan.

Maundy Thursday is on April 6.

Special Days Off from Work

Tuesday, February 1st: Chinese New Year

Saturday, February 25, is the anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution.

Black Saturday is on April 8th.

Monday, August 21 is Ninoy Aquino Day.

Wednesday, November 1, is All Saints’ Day.

Friday, December 8 is the Immaculate Conception of Mary Day.

Sunday, December 31: The final day of the year

Additional Special Day Off from Work

Thursday, November 2, is All Souls’ Day.

The Edsa People Power Revolution’s 37th anniversary must be observed, according to Proclamation 42 “which ushered in the nation’s political, social, and economic reforms.

Additionally, the declaration notes that Black Saturday, which occurs on April 8, 2023, has historically been designated as a special non-working day across the nation in honor of Holy Week, which is “one of our mostly Catholic population’s most cherished customs.

Republic Act (RA) 10966 mandates that December 8 of each year be observed as a special non-working holiday countrywide in observance of Mary’s Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

The proclamation states that in order to honor the passing anniversary of former senator Benigno S. Aquino Jr., August 21 of each year must likewise be designated as a national holiday.

In order to “strengthen family relations by providing extra time for the traditional All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day festivities, as well as boost domestic tourism,” November 2, which was designated as a special working day in 2022, has been announced as an additional special non-working day in 2023.

After the approximate dates of the Islamic holidays have been established, according to the Islamic calendar, the lunar calendar, or upon Islamic astronomical calculations, whichever is possible or convenient, proclamations announcing national holidays for the observance of Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha will be made.

The Department of Labor and Employment is required under Proclamation 42 to publish the implementing regulations.

The proclamation must be printed in a publication with wide circulation before it becomes effective “immediately.”
