History

Bonifacio Day is held on 30 November. Unlike Rizal Day which is held on the death anniversary of José Rizal, Bonifacio Day is celebrated on his birth date. This is because of the controversial events on which Bonifacio was executed by his fellow revolutionaries during time of the Philippine Revolution.

Bonifacio Day became a holiday when the Philippine Legislature passed Act No. 2946, declaring November 30 as a national holiday in remembrance of the birth of the revolutionary Gat Andrés Bonifacio, a key figure in the overthrow the Spanish colonial government. The holiday was first instituted in 1921 with a decree signed by American Governor-General Francis Burton Harrison.
