Around the world this holiday is celebrated in different dates. For example, in Argentina is the second Sunday of August, in Brazil is in October 12, in China is in June 1st, and so on. The official by United Nations in on November 20, but we celebrate our Mexican Revolution Day.
In México, we celebrate with a big party in classrooms in preschool and elementary on April 30.
In Secondary, we don’t celebrate it, because they are not kids anymore (aha?!) Instead, we celebrate Student’s Day on May 23.
I found a really cool idea to celebrate. In Japan, May 5th is Children’s Day. Japaneses celebrate by hanging kites of koi fish outsites their houses (one of each child in the household).
