Bonifacio's birthday (30 November 1863) has been celebrated by civic organizations since 1901. Senator Lope K. Santos filed a bill in 1920 to proclaim November 30 as a holiday. Next year, the governor-general agreed to the bill as Act No. 2946. The law did not name the day on Bonifacio and connected November 30 to the list of holidays listed in Act No. 2711. Eventually, the date became a holiday to remember all Filipino heroes. This carried on even when a different National Heroes' Day holiday was announced in 1931. In 1942, November 30 was selected as National Heroes' Day. Later in 1952, by that time, President Elpidio Quirino ordered to separation of Bonifacio Day and National Heroes' Day by an executive order.
