Well, i’ve long passed the age of celebrating Children’s Day (boohoo!) but now i celebrate it in a different manner! This morning i performed at GlobalKids for everyone at the childcare centre! Some of them had seen me before since i performed for one of the children’s birthday just a few months back.. and they were really happy to see me again! It’s quite fun to see how the children have grown in such a short time space!
Anyway, Children’s Day in Singapore will be celebrated tomorrow.
BUT! Do you know that many different countries actually celebrate their Children’s Day on a different day?
Here’s a quick list of the different days in some countries!
AUSTRALIA – 4th Wednesday of October
CHINA – 4 April
JAPAN – 5 May
USA – Numerous different days declared by the Presidents… so ??? (I don’t know!)
AND… here’s the actual ‘official’ dates:
International Children’s Day – 1 June
Universal Children’s Day (Recommended by UN) – 20 Nov
Oh well, whatever the dates are, it’s children’s day HERE in Singapore, tomorrow. So specially for the children here, HAPPY CHILDREN’S DAY!
PS. A side trivia… today’s the 50th anniversary of the first run of The Flintstones! Yabadabadoo!
