Unlike most holidays that are dedicated to a specific group in which activities and celebrations are held, Children's Day is not specific and it is celebrated on several different days.

That difference seems to be consistent with the nature of children; because for them, every day is a holiday, if their basic needs are provided.

Some facts about Children's Day:

The World Conference on the Rights of the Children, held in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1925, proclaimed to celebrate June 1 as Children's Day. Many countries, including Iraq and China, celebrate Children's Day on this date.

Another day known as Children's Day is November 20, recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954 to encourage countries to better understand children and their welfare.

In addition to these two histories; There are many other different days designated in a number of countries to celebrate Children's Day; Children's Day in Bangladesh is on March 17 while in Bolivia its April 12 and in Brazil October 12.

Despite the differences in the days of celebration, but several different activities will be organized on the occasion, including concerts, festivals, and parades yet this year due to the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, public celebrations are limited.
