Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

CHILDREN’S DAY – Second Sunday in June

CHILDREN’S DAY – Second Sunday in June


The second Sunday in June is known as National Children’s Day in the United States.

A day to honor the children in our lives, National Children’s Day is a time to slow down our fast-paced lives, turn off the tech and refocus on the important things.  Taking one day may not be enough, but using it as an opportunity to redirect our family’s lives may be an important step in a child’s life.


Cherish our children, spend time with them and use #NationalChildrensDay to share on social media.


Reverend Dr. Charles Leonard of the Universalist Church of the Redeemer in Chelsea, Massachusetts started Children’s Day in 1856 as a special day to Baptize children.  He originally named it Rose Day.  In 1995, President Clinton proclaimed National Children’s Day as October 8th.  He was later followed by President Bush in 2001 who declared the first Sunday in June as National Child’s Day.  However, National Children’s Day is generally celebrated the second Sunday in June or October 8th.

There are over 1,200 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day® with National Day Calendar®!
