International Children’s Defense Day

International Children’s Defense Day

Being a famous holiday from the past times, International Children’s defense day is celebrated every year for ensuring the protection of the children. Usually, the celebrations of this day occur on the very first day of the summer season, which means 1st June. Even the schools have connected the defense days with the holidays which happen every summer. These are the longest holidays among the schoolchildren, which varies from 20 days to 2 months according to the varying rules and regulations of the schools. It is believed that children somehow defend themselves from their teachers and visit the waters or mountains to let the stress away.
