Philippines' Holidays: August 21 - Yes; August 23 - No

It has been announced that August 21, 2010, Saturday, will be a specian non-working holiday in the Philippines.

That's Ninoy Aquino Day and in the past administration, there was this long weekend holiday that whenever a holiday falls on a Saturday, it will be moved to the next Monday.

However, under the Noynoy Aquino administration, it's no longer the case.

August 21 (Saturday) will be the exact holiday date while August 23 (Monday) is an ordinary day or a regular working day.

Sad ka ba? For sure, the students and those who work on weekdays aren't happy with the announcement.
