List: Official Holidays for 2021 as Announced by Malacañang

While the community quarantine may not be lifted anytime soon, you can already plot your holiday plans with the family for 2021!

Despite the quarantine and work from home setup many of us do during the COVID-19 pandemic, holidays and long weekends are still something many of us look forward to. It’s an additional day to rest and do what we want to at home—may it be watching movies, sleeping, cooking something new, or simply spending time with family.

As Pope Francis says, a time spent with family is a gift from God that needs to be treasured and nurtured every day. “God always knocks at the door of hearts. He likes to do this. It comes from His heart,” he says. “But, do you know what He likes best? To knock on the doors of families and find families that are united, to find families that love each other, to find the families that bring up their children and educate them and help them to keep going forward and that create a society of goodness, of truth, and of beauty.”

And while the community quarantine may not be lifted anytime soon, you can already plot your holiday plans with the family for 2021! It comes as on Monday, August 17, the Malacañang has already released Presidential Proclamation 986 listing the regular and special non-working holidays for the year 2021.
