Metro Manila · Holidays in 2014
Here you find a list of the nationwide Philippine holidays in 2014. When holidays fall on a weekend, the president sometimes declares the Friday or Monday as a day off instead, actually 'moving' the holiday and creating a long weekend. Watch out for announcements of the President's Palace.
The Philippines has basically two types of holidays, regular holidays and special non-working days. You can see the difference in your salary. A regular holiday is fully paid, and those who work during that day get paid double. A special non-working days is not paid, and those who work get 130 percent of their daily wage.
