The International Day of the Child is celebrated every year on November 20, the day on which the UN General Assembly first adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959 and the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989. Austria is different; we always have our “world children day” on the second weekend in September. Guess it should help the kids to get over the fact that holidays are over.

I remember as a young child asking, every mothers day and every fathers day, why there was no “children day”... and I always got the same lame answer that “every day is children day”. I must have been 18-years-old when I first found out that there is in fact a Children Day after all, I still feel a bit cheated about this when I think of it.
