President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. urged the public to take advantage of the long weekends this year.

"Lubusin natin ang mga long weekend ngayong 2024 kasama ang ating pamilya at mga mahal sa buhay!" the President said in a Facebook post. "Paghandaan din nating mabuti ang ating mga transaksyon at bakasyon para sa isang produktibo at masaganang taon."

Based on the list he shared on social media, the long weekends in 2024 are as follows:

  • March 28 (Maundy Thursday), 29 (Good Friday), 30 (Black Saturday) and 31 (Easter Sunday)
  • August 24 (Saturday), 25 (Sunday) and 26 (National Heroes Day)
  • November 1 (All Saints' Day), 2 (All Souls' Day) and 3 (Sunday)
  • December 28 (Saturday), 29 (Sunday), 30 (Rizal Day) and 31 (Last Day of the Year, a special non-working day)

In October last year, Malacañang Palace released the list of holidays for the year 2024.



Under Proclamation No. 368, several dates for regular holidays and special (non-working) days were declared.


For regular holidays:

  • Jan. 1 – New Year’s Day
  • March 28 – Maundy Thursday
  • March 29 – Good Friday
  • April 9 – Araw ng Kagitingan
  • May 1 – Labor Day
  • June 12 – Independence Day
  • Aug. 26 – National Heroes Day (Last Monday of August)
  • Nov. 30 – Bonifacio Day
  • Dec. 25 – Christmas Day
  • Dec. 30 – Rizal Day

For special (non-working) days:

  • Aug. 21 – Ninoy Aquino Day
  • Nov. 1 – All Saints’ Day
  • Dec. 8 – Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary
  • Dec. 31 – Last Day of the Year


Additional special (non-working) days:

  • Feb. 10 – Chinese New Year
  • March 30 – Black Saturday
  • Nov. 2 – All Souls’ Day
  • Dec. 24 – Christmas Eve

Noticeably, the commemoration of the EDSA People Power Revolution, which happens every February 25, is absent from the list.



The EDSA People Power Revolution happened in 1985, when the late President Marcos Sr., during his 20-year rule, was being pressured by the public and his US allies to declare snap elections.
