another link…a tribute to children.:


In Germany, during the cold war, Children’s Day (Kindertag) was handled quite differently in West Germanyand East GermanyThey were held on different dates in these two states. East Germany celebrated Children’s Day on June 1 while West Germany celebrated it on September 20. The official names of Children’s Day were also different. In East Germany, it was known as “International Children’s Day” (Internationaler Kindertag), whereas in West Germany, it was called “World Children’s Day” (Weltkindertag).

After the Reunification of West and East Germany occurred in 1990, the date and name of the event used in the West have become the official ones for the former East as well. This however was not accepted by large parts of the former East German population. Most parents still celebrate Children’s Day on the former date of June 1, and public events pertaining to Children’s Day take place on September 20.

Australia celebrate Children’s Day on the fourth Wednesday in October.

  2. Hello Connie. I found my way here from Jenogoth’s page and thought to formally introduce myself. My name is Kenny. My Daughter and G/children live in Sweden. I noticed that ” International children’s day ” is celebrated on the first “Monday” in October. Well it may be a coincidence that I find myself reading your blog Today as it is indeed the first Monday of October today. My timing is perfect, as i now shall phone my daughter and talk to my G/children. Thank you for this information.

    Deep peace of the running wave be with you Connie.

    Observing International Children’s Day and renewing our commitment to improving the lives of children around the world and not just in our own backyards or communities, is very important. Whitney Houston said it beautifully when she wrote these lyrics:I believe the children are our futureTeach them well and let them lead the way Show them all the beauty they possess inside Give them a sense of pride to make it easier Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be
