June 1 marks Mother’s Day and Children’s Day
In Mongolia on June 1, both Mother’s Day and Children’s Day are celebrated, and the day is an official public holiday in the country. However this year, public celebration and events for Children’s Day have been cancelled for the second year due to the global pandemic. Mongolia has annually celebrated Children’s Day since 1952.
The celebration of June 1 as International Children’s Day was initiated by the International Federation of Democratic Women during their meeting in November 1949. Thus, countries of the world began to celebrate the day from 1950.
