In's List of Philippine Holidays For 2009, you'll find his handy summary of the ten long weekends in 2009.

* Last year, Eid al-Fitr was on Sept. 30, 2008 (according to, and since Malacañang announced the same also on Sept 30, I'm guessing that the date mentioned in for 2009 will also be the same date that Eid al-Fitr will be observed in the Philippines. Still, it's better to wait for the official announcement.
