What does this holiday celebrate?
"Firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world's children." "It was also chosen as the day to celebrate childhood."
_____________________________________________________

Origin of this Holiday
Children's Day was first celebrated worldwide in October 1953, under the sponsorship of International Union for Child Welfare in Geneva. The idea of a Universal Children's Day was mooted by V. K. Krishna Menon and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954.

Universal Children's Day takes place on November 20 annually. First proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954, it was established to encourage all countries to institute a day, firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world's children. It was also chosen as the day to celebrate childhood.

November 20 is also the anniversary of the day when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959. The Convention on the Rights of the Child was then signed on the same day in 1989, which has since been ratified by 191 states.
