4 long weekends to enjoy

The public holidays for 2008 are:
New Year’s Day
Chinese New Year
Good Friday
Labour Day
Vesak Day
National Day
Hari Raya Puasa
Deepavali
Hari Raya Haji
Christmas Day

SINGAPOREANS will get to enjoy one four-day weekend next year, when
Chinese New Year falls on a Thursday and Friday.
Apart from that long break in February, there will be just three
three-day long weekends to enjoy, when Good Friday, Vesak Day and Hari
Raya Haji fall on a Friday or Monday.
The list of public holidays for next year was released by the Ministry of
Manpower yesterday. It set a tentative date for Deepavali on Oct 28, but
will check it against the Hindu almanacs available later this year.
