Philippine Holidays 2011 and Filipinos’ Festive Spirit

NomNom Club deliciously welcomes the new year of 2011! With the Filipinos’ festive spirit that is inclined to celebrate every occasion there is – be it a birthday, anniversary, fiesta, or even a simple Philippine Holiday – we find it fitting to share this year’s calendar of Philippine Holidays 2011 to our readers.

Moreover, a Filipino celebration is never complete without a feast. From a single dish and softdrink (soda) shared by the family to as much as filling the whole dining table with food; even inviting the closest neighbors or the whole neighborhood. NomNom Club itself never run out of occasions to celebrate. We had NomNom Club 1st Anniversary with Greenwich, Thanksgiving Party with Angel’s, and a Christmas Party with Kraft Eden. What a 2010 that was! 🙂

Perhaps we’ll come up with a list of Philippine Festivals / Philippine Fiestas soon as well. 🙂

Here’s your list / calendar of Philippine Holidays 2011 :

January    01 – New Year’s Day (Saturday)
February   25 – Edsa Revolution Anniversary (Fri) **
April       09 – Araw ng Kagitingan (Sat)
April       21 – Maundy Thursday (Holy Week)
April       22 – Good Friday (Holy Week)

All are regular Philippine holidays unless indicated otherwise.
** Feb 25 is a special holiday for all schools only.
* special non-working days

Holidays for Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha are yet to be announced due to its nature. I hope October 31, 2011 (the Monday before November 1) and Decemebr 24, 2011 would also have been made a holiday since it is sandwiched between weekends and major holidays.

As much as we like to include NomNom Club activities in the calendar / list, of course, we can’t.  (LOL) Anyhow, set your foodie recipes and list of dishes to prepare in accordance with the upcoming Philippine Holidays 2011 you will be celebrating. 🙂
