Followers and readers are asking if June 13, 2011 will be declared a holiday in the Philippines. Previously, during the Arroyo administration, Filipinos are used to long weekends because holidays are being moved on a Friday or a Monday, depending on which day the actual holiday falls.

However, during the Aquino presidency, the Filipinos started to bid goodbye for long weekends, except if a holiday actually falls on a Friday or a Monday. In previous instances like the May 1, 2011 Labor Day holiday which fell on a Sunday, the Filipinos hoped for a long weekend – that the holiday be moved on a Monday, May 2. But it did not happen.

Given the case as above, it will not be of remote possibility that the June 12, 2011, which will be the 113th Celebration of Philippine Independence Day, falling on a Sunday will be celebrated as is. But we still has to wait for any proclamation from Malacanang Palace. We do hope so that it will be moved on the 13th. Who does not love long weekends, right?
