Children’s Day is celebrated in many parts of the world. The World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland, proclaimed June 1 to be International Children’s Day in 1925.
Every year in China we celebrate Children’s Day on 1st June, it is a great day to us because children are the future custodians of the nation, and thus providing them with a good family, social, and educational environment is a goal ardently worked for by every nation. This occasion is considered equivalent to Christmas in China. It is a time to enjoy, make fun and merry as the Chinese consider children to be the future custodians of the country.
What will the children do in this significant day? I will show you about Children’s Day celebrations and traditions in China.
Firstly, The pupils don’t have class today. Instead they perform a play celebrating the Children’s Day in school or other art centers.
Then in the end of the shows, some of the school will held an equitable distribution of gifts among the children.
In vast majority of cities, Children’s Day is held in their own way as well. Restaurants and hotels host buffets and cook special meals, with discounts enclosed, for children and their parents. Some of the store will have kids clothes’ sales promotion.
Childrens’ Day is a day to highlight the dignity of children and their need for love, care, and respect, and instill in the children a sense of independence and national pride, so we hope you will do something special with children on that day or hold a special event in your workplace or community. The most important gift an adult can give to a child is the ‘gift of time’.
