Children' s Day is recognized on various days in many places around the world to honor children globally. It was first proclaimed by the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in 1925 and then established universally in 1954 to protect an "appropriate" day.
In the People's Republic of China, Children' s Day is celebrated on June 1 and is formally known as "the June 1 International Children' s Day" (Chinese: 六一国际儿童节). When the People's Republic of China was first established in 1949, the State Council (Cabinet) designated a half-day holiday for all primary schools on June 1. This was later made into a full day's break in 1956 with The Announcement by the State Council to make June 1 Children' s Day a One-Day Holiday. Schools usually hold activities such as children' s performances, camping trips, or free movies on Children 's Day or the day before to allow students to have fun. Children of civil servants might also receive small gifts from the government until they are fourteen, and Civil servants who have children sometimes have a half-day holiday on June 1 to spend more time with their children. Entrance and set out ceremonies of the Young Pioneers of China are usually held on June 1 as well. Entrance of children under 14 into the Forbidden City is free on June 1, while each accompanying adult gets 100% off, i.e. CNY30.
