Children's Day started to be celebrated worldwide since 1979 recognized by UNESCO. Turkish Radio and Television Corporation sponsors the TRT International April 23 Children's Festival every year. More than 50 countries participate each year and children from all over the world come to Turkey and stay with families that have similar aged children. They participate in week long festivities, playing games, performing their national dances and sight seeing.
The celebrations take place in many different cities in Turkey and it is a joyful event with the motto:
LOVE, FRIENDSHIP and PEACE
So, I would like to say:
Happy Children's Day!
to the children of the world.
