World Children’s Day is celebrated on November 20th each year. In 1954, the UN made a holiday for children to understand each other and to make sure that all kids are safe and happy. Today, we are celebrating World Children’s Day in many places around the world.
The UN General Assembly decided to declare World Children’s Day as a way to celebrate and honor kids around the world. 836 (IX) suggested that every country should have a special day starting in 1956. The Assembly asked every country to pick a day to celebrate Children’s Day.
World Children’s Day is on November 20 because it marks the anniversary of when the UN decided on the Rights of the Child in 1959 and the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989. Both papers are very important for people around the world. They are meant to keep children safe and give them rights like the right to live, be healthy, go to school, play, have parents who take care of them, be safe from violence and unfair treatment, and express themselves.
World Children’s Day events are held to make people notice children’s issues and work together to solve them as quickly as we can.
