January 23, 2012 declared as Special Non-Working Day

January 23, 2012 (Monday) was declared by President Noynoy Aquino as a special non-working holiday  in celebration of the Chinese New Year by virtue of Proclamation No. 295, series of 2011.

The President's proclamation will strengthen the ties between the government of the Philippines and China. This is also an acknowledgement of the rich cultural heritage of Filipino-Chinese citizens in the country. This is a long weekend for Filipinos who want to have a vacation in the provinces as well.
