Posted on August 9, 2015 in Announcements by Batasan Hills Admin

There are 2 long weekends this August 2015 as the 21st falls on a Friday while the 31st falls on a Monday.

August Long Weekends

August 21 is Ninoy Aquino Day – a national non-working holiday in the Philippines, commemorating the assassination of former Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr.

Furthermore, National Heroes Day in the Philippines is held every last Monday of August. This date was chosen as it marked the beginning of the Cry of Pugad Lawin in 1896, the start of the Philippine revolution against the Spanish colonizers.

For the complete list of nationwide holidays this 2015, see Proclamation No. 831, s. 2014.
