Universal Children’s Day

Celebrated every year on November 20.

Children’s Day was celebrated for the first time somewhere after 1857 when reverand Dr. Charles Leonard held a special service dedicated to and held for children.
This service on the second Sunday of June was first called Rose Day and later caller Flower Sunday.
But eventually it was called Children’s Day.

Throughout the years after there were many Childrens’ Days organized on many dates.
Eventually in 1954 the United Nations declared a Universal Childrens’ Day to be held on every November 20
“to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare.”

“Seven things every child needs to hear: I love you, I’m proud of you, I’m sorry, I forgive you, I’m listening. This is your responsibility. You have what it takes to succeed.”
