Diary of Gregorio del Pilar

December 25, 1896

We are in Palaguid (Kakaron de Sili). All the comrades are gathered. To commemorate the birth of the Savior, we hoisted our Flag, fired our cannons and rendered obeisance to the K.K.K.

In the afternoon, target practice. Joy is seen on the faces of everyone. And heaven seems to hear us, reverberating with enthusiastic shouts of Long live the Filipinos.
