(Worldkings.org) Children's Day is a commemorative date celebrated annually in honor of children, whose date of observance varies by country.

Children's Day is a commemorative date celebrated annually in honor of children, whose date of observance varies by country. In 1925, International Children's Day was first proclaimed in Geneva during the World Conference on Child Welfare. Since then, it is celebrated on June 1 in most countries.

 

 

Children's Day began on the second Sunday of June in 1857 by Reverend Dr. Charles Leonard, pastor of the Universalist Church of the Redeemer in Chelsea, Massachusetts: Leonard held a special service dedicated to, and for the children.

Leonard named the day Rose Day, though it was later named Flower Sunday, and then named Children's Day.  Children's Day was first officially declared a national holiday by the Republic of Turkey in 1920 with the set date of 23 April.

 

 

Children's Day has been celebrated nationally since 1920 with the government and the newspapers of the time declafring it a day for the children. However, it was decided that an official confirmation was needed to clarify and justify this celebration and the official declaration was made nationally in 1929 by the founder and the President of the Republic of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

The International Day for Protection of Children is observed in many countries as Children's Day on 1 June since 1950. It was established by the Women's International Democratic Federation on its congress in Moscow (4 November 1949).​
