    Alexandra from class 4-2 researched Fillipino-American Friendship Day
    Fillipino-American Friendship Day, on July 4th, was made by President Diosdado Macapagal to commemorate the liberation of the country by joint Fillipino and American forces from the Japanese occupation at the end of World War 2. The Philippines was a U.S. territory from 1898 to 1942, when it was occupied by Japanese forces,and again for a brief period after the war. The country gained complete independence on July 4,1946. Initially the nation's independence day holiday (Araw Ng Kalayaan) was held on July 4th, but former President Diosdado Macapagal moved it to June 12, the date on which the Philippines declared independence from Spain in 1898. Fillipino-American Friendship Day was created in its place, and coincides with the United States July 4 Independence Day.
