Philippine Public Holidays 2011 for the Weekend Warriors!

After a short Christmas break everyone is already scrambling to know when is the next long weekend. Like everyone, my family and I look forward to a short and rejuvenating trip that can be squeezed in a 3 day weekend. Pres. Aquino released the holiday schedule for 2011 already under proclamation no. 84.

President Aquino said, there will be less long weekends next year and no group lobbying in amending the economic holidays of the past administration.
