Tomorrow, November 14th is celebrated as Children's Day in India. Here schools are declared holiday. Various competitions like oratorical, drawing, singing, etc., are held for students to participate and prizes are awarded for the best. I hope every country has children's day. Let me know more about when it is celebrated in your country and how you celebrate children's day.

hii anu, Children day is celebrated in India on 14th Nov every year in the loving memory of our First Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru who used to love children a lot. When i was in school we never had holiday as such but we did have lots and lots of cultural programmes in the school like skits and drama and usual theme of them at that time was love of country or things like that. I hope it keeps continuing like this only and children are thought to love their country.
