How do you celebrate National Heroes Day? It’s a perfect opportunity to spend time with family and honor the heroes who died fighting to make the Philippines what it is today. But when you think about it, we all have our own heroes in life, and they deserve to be celebrated too!
We’re talking about the fathers who work hard each day and send their love and money to the Philippines to support family members; the mothers who send money to their children abroad; and so many more benevolent figures in our lives. Every time they transfer funds to their loved ones, they show how heroic they are.
Just as we honor the thousands of courageous men and women of Philippine history on National Heroes Day, we can honor our loved ones who are leaders in their communities and make a positive difference every single day. So this year, why not take a minute to thank our own heroes for everything they do? Return the love they so freely give.
Another special part of National Heroes Day is getting the chance to immerse yourself in the Filipino culture. There are plenty of activities you and your family can do together for the holiday. Maybe attend a wreath-laying ceremony together, or perform your own.
National Heroes Day is the perfect time to reconnect and strengthen family bonds. During your celebration of the holiday, consider taking a moment to call your loved ones who are overseas. A holiday brings families together no matter how many miles actually separate them. While you are reconnecting, you can also thank them for their heroic deeds over the years. Telling people how thankful you are for their generosity is a wonderful holiday gift to give!
