Happy Children’s Day To Our Nigerian Children And Canadian School Spring Fair

United Nations Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20th each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare. So National Child Day, also regarded as Children’s Day is celebrated in Canada on November 20 in recognition of the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

However, Children’s Day is celebrated on May 27th in my country, Nigeria.

Coincidentally, my son’s school had their Spring Fair today, Saturday May 27th so I made sure I reminded/told my Nigerian neighbours and friends about the fair (even those whose kids aren’t in the school), so our Naija kids can also have a feel of the Nigerian Children’s Day celebration in Canada 😊.

The fair was really nice and the kids had fun, likewise the adults too. There were different games. Police and fire service were on ground and took the kids on a tour of their vehicles, they were lectured about the activities of the police and fire service. Huge kudos to the school for putting up such a nice event for the kids in our community, even though it was tagged ‘Spring Fair’, I tagged mine in my mind ‘Children’s Day’ because of our Nigerian children here 😊. So we countdown to the Canadian/Universal November 20 Children’s Day. In actual fact though, our children are celebrated everyday and not just a day. God bless them all.
