LOOK HERE: Full list of national holidays for 2022

With just a little over two months remaining in 2021, Malacañang has already published the official list of national holidays for the year 2022. This is mentioned through President Rodrigo Duterte’s Proclamation 1236, which was signed this October 29.

There will be a total of 16 regular and special non-working holidays for 2022.  Other than those, there is also the two Muslim holidays that are observed nationwide – Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha. As mandated by law, there will be separate holiday proclamations for those from Office of the President once the National Council for Muslim Filipinos makes a recommendation regarding the date.

Based on Proclamation 1236, there will be at least four three-day weekends next year, including the Lenten holidays.
