Is January 2, 2023, a holiday in the Philippines?

is january 2 2023 a holiday

With the New Year’s Day set on a Sunday, the most important question now is whether January 2, 2023, is a holiday so Filipinos can continue enjoying their vacation a little bit more before being pushed “back to reality.” Find out if the second day of the year 2023 is a holiday in this blog!

The last days of December and the early days of January are always the most jam-packed weeks of the holidays. So for working Filipinos, it is all about planning the right days to file for leave to enjoy the holidays as much as possible.

If you can still file for leave, we suggest filing for January 3, 2023, because Monday, January 2, has been declared as a special non-working holiday by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.!

On November 9, 2022, the President declared a new set of 2023 holidays in the Philippines through Proclamation No. 90. This new proclamation updates the previous Proclamation No. 42, signed in August, which also declares the list of 2023 holidays.



Included in the Special Non-Working Days section is January 2, 2023.
