The President of the Philippines issued Proclamation No. 655 dated September 25, 2013 declaring the regular holidays, special (non-working) days, and special holidays for calendar year 2014 as follows:
2014 Regular Holidays Philippines
2014 Special Non-working Days Philippines
2-14 Additional Special Non-working Days
Special Holiday (for all schools)
Additional National Holdiay
The above two (2) additional national holiday in the Philippines shall be declared based on a separate proclamation after the approximate dates of the Islamic holidays have been determined.
We commend the Office of the President for the early release of the 2014 list of Philippine holidays under Proclamation No. 655. At this early, business establishments, public offices, schools, and other private offices could plan ahead courses of action towards effective operations during those Philippine holidays under Proclamation No. 655.
For private and public employees, business owners, corporate officers, freelancers in the Philippines, and students of public and private schools, it is a good opportunity to plan a vacation in tourist destinations in the Philippines (e.g. Boracay Philippines, Palawan, Cebu, Bohol, Davao, Camiguin, Leyte-Samar, etc), or plan travels abroad. Please note that it is best to book a plane ticket long ahead of travel dates for cheaper airline tickets.
