No Homework Day

No Homework Day is a worldwide holiday dedicated to taking a break from homework. Children are assigned quite a bit of homework: solving some examples, mastering theory, solving problems, writing essays, and more. It’s an important learning process in any educational setting, but the holiday calls for setting aside this day to skip homework and give kids a break. The holiday is celebrated annually on May 6


The story of No Homework Day begins with the initiative of a famous couple, Thomas and Ruth Roy. They have created more than a dozen holidays, some with serious themes and others created purely for fun.

Homework should not be abandoned completely. The child’s academic performance will suffer greatly, as will his discipline. The holiday is aimed at giving children a day of rest and not doing those boring and monotonous assignments. Today you should do your favorite things: play games, go for a walk with friends, visit an amusement park, read an interesting book. Do not leave your child alone with a gadget on this day. Let the rest be active and useful, then the holiday will fulfill its purpose 100%.

Interesting facts

  • Lack of rest in students can lead to nervous breakdown and overwork.

How to celebrate
