List of Philippine Public Holidays in 2019

With 2019 still a couple of days away, many of us are already anticipating for the New Year. For us, Filipinos, other than celebrating the New Year with great joy and feasting, we hold much expectation on the beginning of a new year because it means a fresh start and new opportunities for us to do better.

But for the working class (us included), the New Year marks a fresh beginning at work, and a new set of vacation leaves that we’ll be planning for once again. It’s probably more meaningful for OFWs who only get to be with their families a few times in a year, but for the rest of us who want to make good use of our days off at work, knowing what the public holidays are for the year could mean more goals to be met and more satisfying experiences to be achieved.
