Children's Day began on the second Sunday of June in 1857 by Reverend Dr. Charles Leonard, pastor of the Universalist Church of the Redeemer in Chelsea, Massachusetts: Dr. Leonard held a special service dedicated to, and for the children. Dr. Leonard named the day Rose Day, though it was later named Flower Sunday, and then Children's Day.
There is also International Children's day in November. Children's day is celebrated at various times throughout the year, one of which is June 1st and June 10th. Regardless of the date please be aware of the purpose behind the event.
