In East Germany, children’s Day began in 1950 and has been the happiest day of the year for children ever since. Often will receive parents’ blessing and gifts, in the school will also be held special celebration activities, such as outings.

The first article of Singapore’s Holiday Law stipulates that Children’s Day on October 1 will be a holiday not only for children, but also for all adults. The reason is that if only children are given a holiday, the adults are out to work, no one to play with the children, the poor children in children’s Day can only watch TV at home. In addition, Singapore is a very well-off country, but its population is very small, the children’s Day Law also helps to promote those who like to vacation with young couples, through more children to get more vacation.

What’s more, Singapore’s largest national playground has a special rule for Children’s Day, which requires children to buy full tickets and adults to buy half tickets. In this way, not only let the children happy to experience a small adult feeling, but also let the adults find a long-lost childhood time. And because of this special rule, there was a funny story that made Singaporeans laugh.

Most Islamic countries make the 14th day after Ramadan the“Candy Day”, for children, this is the happiest children’s Day.

Popular in Qatar and other gulf countries, the“Candy Festival” can be called the world’s happiest children’s Day, not only does the festival last three days, and on these days the children can enjoy the“Wind to the wind, rain to the Rain” day. It is said that before the festival began, the women began to prepare new clothes for their children. So much so that within a month of the festival, the tailors’ business would be booming. The night lights would be as bright as day. Of course, since it’s candy day, there’s no shortage of different kinds of candy, and on the opening night, parents hand out bags of candy and nuts to their children. As with other major festivals, the girls began to dress up in various colorful embroidered clothes and scarves with gold-rimmed headbands from the evening onwards, this scarf is called“White hernager” or“Muhernager”.

Of course, when it comes to free will, it’s because during the candy festival, children have the privilege of going to a neighbor’s house to ask for candy, whether they’re poor or poor, even if they’re not from the same class of neighbors, according to the custom, also can not refuse the request of the children, each family should prepare some candy, give pocket money, and bless each other. These three days, the children are really back to the fairy tale kingdom.
