Philippine Independence Day

Today we celebrate our
109th Independence Day. It was on June 12, 1898 when our Pres. Emilio Aguinaldo declared our independence and sovereignty from the Spaniards in Kawit, Cavite.

Actually it was really every July 4th that the independence was celebrated but Pres. Diosdado Macapagal signed a law in 1964 moving our independence day every June 12th. And now July 4th is known as the
Fil-American Friendship Day.
