  • Long weekends

    Real talk. Aside from payday, there is one more day that employees await with pleasure: Holiday. 

    For many, holidays have been an escape from a stressful daily life. We can’t blame them, though, as there aren’t just enough days in a weekend!

    Well, we’ve got just the thing to cheer you up! Malacañang has released an updated list of holidays for 2023. And guess what? At least 10 holidays and special non-working days fall near weekends which only means one thing — long weekends!

    On a more important note, here’s a list of long weekends to help you plot those vacation leaves in 2023:

    While the thought of vacationing in breathtaking islands or beautiful cities can get everyone going, there’s nothing wrong with spending quality time with loved ones and perhaps, some much-needed me-time away from work. After all, the only thing better than a long weekend is that it’s followed by a short work week. You feel us, fam?

    From all of us here at 96.3 Easy Rock Manila, we wish you a lite and easy new year!
