International Children’s Day is celebrated on 1 June each year. It is usually marked with speeches on children’s rights and well being, children TV programs, parties, various actions involving or dedicated to children, families going out etc. It complements Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

In Poland Children’s Day (Dzień Dziecka, literally “Child’s Day”) is celebrated also on June 1. The International Children’s Day was introduced in Poland in 1952. It coincides with the beginning of summer and it is usually treated as a holiday, as it takes place near the end of the school year. Schools usually organize special activities for the day of the celebration, and the first week of June is a time of festivities organized in parks and entertainment centres for children. Parents usually buy small gifts for their children.

From my childhood memories I can remember small gifts and sweets placed on my pillow either when I just woke up or on that day after school… I don’t know yet what I’m going to prepare for my children, but definitely something sweet + some little not edible gift, for the smaller one possibly Amy Hodgepodge books about multiracial girl ;)

And what are your planning for the 1st of June? I would love to hear about your plans for this day.
