Universal Children’s Day

Universal Children’s Day is celebrated on November 20 in the world. The holiday is one of the brightest in the world, because it is dedicated to children! Without the support of adults, they cannot have a happy future, so we must unite to create a bright, beautiful and cozy world for them.


The holiday was founded by the UN in 1954 to encourage people to take part in the upbringing and well-being of the little citizens of the planet. Whether you have children or not, you can join the activities too! Every country in the world celebrates a similar date, it falls on different dates, but the meaning remains the same. Work is being carried out on all fronts: affordable education and medicine, development of the future, concern for the world around us, respect for history. Special topics and goals are also announced, which are gradually completed with success.

The first day was celebrated in Turkey in 1920 on April 23rd. The government considered that a declaration at the national level was required for official celebrations. It was made by the President of the Republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. In the modern concept, this is not just a day that allows you to accept children as they are, but to do everything for their happiness, protecting them from violence and bad people.
