I totally forgot that today we are celebrating the 110th anniversary of our country’s independence.
If not for this timely Question by Y!A Staffer Jonas, a real deal GREEN BADGE Staff Holder, then it would have totally slipped my mind. And it does not help that we are behind by some 16 hours over where I’m at currently–it’s still June the 11th over here.
The link to the question of Jonas is:
But anyway since I do not want to ask another Q today in YAP, I will just post this nationalistic question over here.
What do you think should be the proper day we celebrate our country’s independence?
A. June 12 (Aguinaldo’s proclamation of independence from Spain on Jun 12, 1898)
B. July 4 (marking the independence from American rule on Jul 4, 1946)
C. January 21 (the opening day of the Malolos Congress on Jan 21, 1899)
D. January 23 (when the Malolos Congress ratified the independence proclamation of June 12th)
E. April 27 (the day Filipinos defeated Magellan & first declared their freedom from foreign rule on Apr 27, 1521)
F. Another date: (specify)
G. We are still not a truly independent nation
H. I was absent/sleeping when they taught that lesson in my school.
