The tradition of celebrating Children's Day started here in 1931, but then it wasn't just a special day. The festive of events ran for a whole week. Only later that week of celebrations was shortened to one day only, much to children's regret!
On Children's Day in Hungary parents allow their children to do 'whatever they want to' and visit any place they would like, so zoos and amusement parks become very popular on this day.
Children also chose where they'd like to eat. Parents can't say “No”, because it's Children's Day and they do nearly everything for them.
The weather may spoil all outdoor events, however, children won't be upset, because they make ask their parents for any present they want to. Many children choose this option and get some things, they were dreaming of for a long time.
The government of Hungary remembers about celebration of Children's Day and makes local authorities and governmental institutions responsible for organization of special events for children.
These cultural and educational events are focused on children's well-being. Parents are also welcomed to participate.
