Children’s day in Russia
Children’s day in Russia and the International Children’s Day are the same day, on June 1. Whenever the Children’s Day is coming, all the children in the Russia will happily celebrate their own festival. For example, they would perform a number of ethnic dance and hold celebrations in school.
Finally, I will introduce the origin of International Children’s Day, which is related with Russia. In November 1949, Women’s International Democratic Federation hold the meeting in Moscow and all the representatives from too many countries angrily exposed the crime of imperialist and reactionary. For example, they always murder children. In order to protect the children’s life rights , health rights and education rights, what’s more, lives of children should be improved, the meeting decided to establish International Children’s Day on June 1 every year.
By the way, there are three Children’s Days in Japan,which is so amusing.
