World Children’s Day
It’s a common saying: Children are the future. Regardless of whether or not you have children, this statement rings true. Children today are tomorrow’s politicians, scientists, doctors, and teachers. All of humanity’s achievements since its inception will be passed on to their children. Children of today will have to protect the weak and vulnerable people of the world and make the toughest decisions. Our children deserve a holiday. This day is dedicated for all children so they can enjoy their childhood and be prepared for their future responsibilities. Let’s have fun, children! The Universal Children’s Day was established by the General Assembly of the United Nations on October 5, 1954. The original goals of Universal Children’s Day were to promote interaction among children of different races, creeds, and religions, as well as to inspire governments around the world to be more concerned about the welfare of their youngest citizens. While Universal Children’s Day falls on November 20th in most countries, each country participating in the celebrations has its own date. In South Sudan, Children’s Day is on December 23rd in Cuba, on the third Sunday in July in Cuba, and in Poland, on June 1st in Poland. Universal Children’s Day was established as a holiday in 1995. It has been associated with many noble causes such as the pledge to end HIV/AIDS by 2015. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary-General, aims to achieve the goal that every child has access to education and can attend school. It is also important to promote peace, respect, and concern for the environment among children around the world. This day is celebrated in a variety of ways by different countries. This day is a wonderful day to spend time with your children. It’s educational and fun for all ages. A trip to the zoo is a great idea. Wild animals are fascinating for children. You can watch them in action and have many opportunities to discuss different aspects of the world with your child. You can also take your children to see a great movie for kids. Then, you can discuss the story and watch the movie together. What was the reason the hero/heroin behaved the way they did? What was wrong with the villain’s behaviour? What would your child do in a similar situation to the one he or she is currently in? Many people don’t realize that animated movies aren’t just about the animation and the songs. They teach valuable life lessons about friendship, loyalty and compassion to children.
