National Heroes’ Day Weekend (3 Days)

October 30 to November 1. Undas or Todos Los Santos or the All Saints’ Day is a national holiday where people flock to cemeteries across the country to offer prayers and give flowers to dead relatives’ graves. This is a beautiful family tradition that dates back centuries ago during the Spanish occupation. Since we are still in a pandemic, we are unsure if the LGUs will allow people to visit the cemetery to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Recently, Malacañang has amended the list of holidays for 2021, declaring November 2 (All Souls’ Day) as a “special working holiday.”

End of the Year Weekend (4 Days)

December 30, 2021, to January 2, 2022. We have to end the year right by spending more time with our loved ones by celebrating the new year.

By the way, Malacañang has amended the list of holidays for 2021, declaring December 24 (Christmas Eve) and December 31 (last day of the year) as “special working holiday.”
