International Children's Day (01/06)

If today nature gave a warm sunny day, then it becomes doubly joyful - because on the first day of summer in many countries International Children's Day is celebrated.

International Children's Day is one of the oldest international holidays. The decision to hold it was made in 1925 at the World Conference on the Welfare of Children in Geneva. History is silent why it was decided to celebrate this children's holiday on June 1.

According to one version, in 1925, the Consul General of China in San Francisco gathered a group of Chinese orphans and arranged for them to celebrate the Duan Wu Ze (Dragon Boat Festival), the date of which just fell on June 1. Luckily, the day coincided with the time of the “children's” conference in Geneva.
