1 June - International Children's Day

Dracula
By Dracula

The International Children's Day had its origin in Turkey in 1920 (April 23, 1920) and later in the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland in 1925.
It is not clear as to why June 1 was chosen as the International Children's Day: one theory has it that the Chinese consul-general in San Francisco (USA) gathered a number of Chinese orphans to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival in 1925, which happened to be on June 1 that year, and also coincided with the conference in Geneva.

Children's Day is celebrated on 1 June each year. It is usually marked with speeches on children's rights and wellbeing, children TV programs, parties, various actions involving or dedicated to children, families going out etc.

I don't think many people do celebrate this day though.. maybe because they don't know...

I took my baby for ice cream, to the playground, and I bought my baby a lovely toy.

And my mum also smsed me with flowers, because after all, we are ALL CHILDREN...
