Why is Children’s Day celebrated?
Children’s Day or children’s day has been celebrated in Argentina since 1960 based on the UN recommendation that each country “set aside a day to promote the well-being of girls and boys with social and cultural activities”.
In this sense, the country established the third Sunday of August to celebrate the date, on a day where minors are protagonists, but, in addition, spaces for reflection are generated to promote and respect their rights.
