In some schools, lessons are suspended for the day. Children enjoy games, music, and bring in their favorite foods to school to share with others. Some families also spend a day out with their kids.

There are special activities for the children in parks and sports centers. Sometimes, also, the children will be given presents by their families. This is the day when children are honored in Mexico.
Children’s Day in Mexico started in 1925. This celebration had its origins during the Álvaro Obregón’s presidential period after the country joined the Geneva Conventions and looking after the wellness of the vulnerable children affected by the World War I. Later, the Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the Child was adopted on November 26 of 1924 by the League of Nations recognizing that children are the most affected by the war events.
United Nations recommended the 20th of November to celebrate Children’s Day throughout the world, but that day coincides with Revolution Day (Mexico). Also, the 30th of April was selected in order to avoid the 1st of May (Labor Day) and the celebrations of Cinco de Mayo (The Day of the Battle of Puebla).
