Rizal150

Filipinos on twitter celebrate #Rizal150

Filipinos on Twitter greeted Jose Rizal a warm 150th Birthday.  Dr. Jose Rizal is the Philippines’ National Hero.  19 June 2011 marks his 150th birthday.  Rizal wrote two novels among his many achievements.  Alive, he was branded a heretic by the Catholic Church.  He was executed by Spain.

The celebration has also rekindled some interest in history like rediscovering the typical siesta merienda during Rizal’s time.

Here are some Filipino tweets on Rizal’s 150th Birthday.
