BTW, the only country I know which has an extra holiday in this weekend is China. Could you please tell me your email address? I know this kind of topic is not proper in this forum...

Actually I'm in the Philippines. Our holiday is actually supposed to be tomorrow, but our president has a tendency to move holidays near weekends to give long weekends.

It's not just you, we do that in the US too :)

LOL. I suppose it's because the populace is mostly dissatisfied with the president, and the president is trying to appease the populace? Those are the conditions in our country anyway ^^

Well, we've been doing that before Bush, so probably not. I think it's because makes it easier for banks, schools, businesses, etc.
