The last long weekend of 2024 will be enjoyed by Filipinos from December 28 (Saturday) to December 31 (Tuesday), since December 30 (Rizal Day) is a regular holiday while December 31 (New Year's Eve) is a special non-working day.

The declaration of the long weekends is in accordance with the government's principle of holiday economics, which aims to boost local economies as families and friends stay together longer.
