International Children's Day

International Children’s Day: June 1

June 1st is “International Children’s Day”.

The main purpose of this anniversary is to respect the rights of children.

June 1st was chosen at the 1925 World Congress in Geneva.

It is mainly the former communist countries that set this day as a child’s holiday.

The United Nations has enacted November 20th, the World Children’s Day, when the Declaration on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of the Child were adopted.

Incidentally, many countries have other days as children’s holidays.
