On the last Monday of August, the Filipinos the Cry of Pugad Lawin as a pivotal moment in the Filipino independence movement as a revolt that kicked off the 1896 Philippine Revolution against the Spanish Empire and the long struggle toward that country’s independence. It is a day to honor the bravery of all Filipino heroes who struggled for the nation's freedom, including those who vanished into anonymity.

Why do we celebrate National Heroes Day?

  2. As Heroes day is a national holiday, it spares us some time to  be with our family.- On this special day, it’s a great opportunity to take the time off to spend quality time with our family and friends. It is a meaningful way of celebrating the occasion.

  3. If you don’t know much about the history in the Philippines, this is the chance to educate ourselves. Take some time on National Heroes Day to learn more about the Philippines and its journey to independence.
