In 2022, many Philippine holidays fell on the weekend. But in 2023, you may have noticed that many of those holidays now land on a Monday or Friday. If your OFS doesn’t work on the weekends, they can expect around 9 “long weekends” if we count regular and special holidays.

If your business is affected by this, make sure you talk to your OFS to work on their schedules as soon as possible.

These are Philippine holidays that will result in long weekends.

PS. My family recently went on holiday to Southern California. It’s amazing to me how fast the kids grow.  One of my 5 is already out of the house, and another is about to leave.  So sad.
