Happy Children's day!!

Yay I Know everyone must be wondering whats this..well I did a lil bit of research on this. Actually the universal children's day observed by the United nations and UNESCO is celebrated on November 20 each year.However in India it is preponed and is observed on November 14 to celebrate the birthday of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was an eminent leader along with Mahatma Gandhi in the freedom struggle and the first prime minister of independent India.Children's day is celebrated on this day for his love for children as he always lovingly posed with them.The day is celebrated with lots of activities for children and teaching them the right values for being the better citizens of tommorow.

Different countries celebrate children's day on different days. Anyways it was fun sharing this piece of information!! when is children's day celebrated in your country??
