How to Plan for 7 Long Weekends?

1) New Year's Day 1 Jan 2023 (Sunday)
Long weekend 31st Dec 2022 to 2 Jan 2022
Since the holiday falls on Sunday, Monday will be a public holiday. You do not need to take any extra days for long weekends.

2) Chinese New Year 22 Jan (Sunday)  - 23 Jan (Monday)
Long weekend 21 Jan 2022 to 23 Jan 2022

This one is a bit of a lugi . While you have a long weekend to celebrate CNY, you would lose a day as Sunday, and the following Monday are official holidays.

3) Good Friday 7 Apr (Friday)
Long Weekend 7 Apr to 9 Apr

The Easter weekend is a traditional long weekend on our calendars.

4) Labour Day 1 May (Monday)
Long Weekend : 29 Apr to 1 May

This year Labour Day falls on a Monday, so you would have another long holiday.

5) Vesak Day 2 June (Friday)
Long Weekend: 2 to 4 June

This was initially earmarked to be on 3 June. It was revised to 2 June, so you have a long weekend!

6) Deepavali 12 Nov (Sunday)
Long Weekend 11 Nov to 13 Nov

Since Deepavali falls on 12 Nov, you will also have Monday as a holiday!

7) Christmas Day 25 Dec (Monday)
Long Weekend 23 Dec to 25 Dec

Long weekend for Christmas!

Time to start planning for that holiday!
