It's hard to tell, when the tradition to celebrate Children's Day was exactly born. Some historians believe, that it's older than Mother's Day and Father's Day. However, the first recorded international attempts to establish this holiday date back to 1925, when it was proclaimed for the first time by the World Conference for the Well-being of Children. The holiday was established at the universal level in 1954. Many countries observe Children's Day on June 1, but every government may choose a special date for celebration, that depends on the history of the nation.
For instance, Cuba and Venezuela chose to celebrate Children's Day on the third Sunday in July. Various festive activities are organized for children.
