One of the things that we miss from the Gloria Arroyo is her holiday economics wherein public holidays falling on midweek are moved to either Friday or Monday so the public can enjoy a long weekend. This policy is not a priority of President Noynoy Aquino so we don’t get a lot of long weekends in his administration.
We were glad when news came out that Palace announced that there will be a 4-day long weekend in August. It will be a good opportunity to spend with family or to go on vacation. The holidays areAugust 29 (Monday) marks National Heroes’ Day while August 30 (Tuesday) is the end of Ramadan.
We can all start planning out what to do on those days. It will also be a good time for the airlines to have some promo.
