Philippine Official Holidays for 2013

My friend, have you noticed that airline companies are posting their discounted airfare promotions?  I am not only talking about airlines here in the Philippines but also other foreign airlines.  Mr. Wilson Lee Flores once tweeted that Emirates had their sale.

But before you pull out your credit card and visit any airline site, you need to know first the best time to plan for your vacation.  Usually for the majority of the Philippine workforce, the best time is during holidays.  People want to maximize their standard 15-day Vacation Leaves so that it will last till the end of the year or for long vacations you’re saving up because of special occacions (weddings, family reunions, etc.).

To help you with your decision, allow me to provide you what President Noynoy Aquino had declared as posted on the Official Gazette of our country:
