Bonifacio Day

Another National Holiday here in the Philippines to commemorate the birth of a National Hero Andres Bonifacio, who was born on November 30, 1863. Today's holiday is called Bonifacio Day or the National Heroes Day.

Unlike other Filipino heroes who's death are more remembered or celebrated than their birth, Andres Bonifacio is the opposite because of historical reason. Unlike Jose Rizal who died in the hands of the enemy, Andres Bonifacio was executed by his compatriots. It was Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo who ordered his execution, because he was considered an enemy of the state after the events at the Tejeros Convention.
