  3. I find it absurd that our president and/or his officials would declare Chinese New Year (the first time in our holiday calendar?) for whatever reason or purpose it maybe. He/they could have declared Dec. 26, 2011 and January 2, 2012 as holidays instead. This will serve more the Filipino community than the Chinese New year although our president is of chinese descent.

  10. People cannot be able to enjoy the christmas and new year season with their family because of a non declared supposed to be holidays. Tingnan nyo naman Christmas Day falls on sunday and the New years Day as well, then pagka monday (Dec. 26 and Jan. 2) may work na ang mga tao. Parang ordinary days lang ang Christmas day at new year. I hope PNoy should analyze this, its not yet too late, he can still declare the Jan. 2 as holiday if he wants to.

  13. The Philippines already have too many holidays as it is. The government already gives to many concessions for the celebration of holidays. Holidays should only be in commemoration of an event or a tradition, and not to give allowance to people to go back to work from their provinces. That's just plain laziness. What are vacation leaves for? Plan ahead.

    Other countries like the US have Christmas & New Year holidays too where many go back to their home states as well for the holidays. Considering the how big the US is. You don't see them declaring December 26 or January 2 as national holidays.

  17. February 25 should be considered a special non-working holiday as it has always been way back years ago. This commemoration actually needs to be taken into consideration here in the Philippines than the chinese new year (though i have nothing against the chinese people)
