Summary
This is the day when children are honored in Mexico.
Local name
Día Del Niño

In Mexico, Children's Day ("Día Del Niño") is celebrated on April 30th. On this day teachers organize the day for their children. In some schools, lessons are suspended for the day. They organize games, music, and the children bring in their favorite foods to share with others. Some families also have a day out with their children. There are special activities for children in parks and sports centers. Sometimes, also, the children will be given presents by their families.

As it is spring, children wear many bright colors to celebrate their youth and the coming of Spring.

Children's Day in Mexico started in 1925. This celebration had its origins during Álvaro Obregón's presidential period after the country joined the Geneva Conventions and looking after the wellness of the vulnerable children affected by World War I. The United Nations suggested in 1959 countries adopt a National Children's Day in honor of the Children's Rights Declaration of 1959.
