Today Google is celebrating “Día del niño 2013” in Panama. If you do not know what Día del niño 2013 means, it is easy to guess from today’s Google Doodle that it has something to do with kids. Since I have been following Google Doodles and reporting them as I see them on Google’s homepages it has become evident to me that Google loves children.
All over the world when it is Children’s day, google almost always have a Google Doodle announcing the day, leading to information about Children’s and Children’s day. In Panama, Children’s Day or Kid’s Day was formerly held on November 1, but was changed by Vivian Fernandez de Torrijos, the wife of President Martin Torrijos (2004–2009), to the third Sunday of July. Today Día del niño 2013 in Panama falls on the 21th of July 2013.
Children’s Day is recognized on various days in many places around the world, to honor children globally. It was first proclaimed by the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in 1925 and then established universally in 1954 to protect an “appropriate” day. Major global variants include a Universal Children’s Day on November 20, by United Nations recommendation.
Children’s Day is often celebrated on other days as well. International Day for Protection of Children, observed in many countries as Children’s Day on June 1 since 1950, was established by the Women’s International Democratic Federation on its congress in Moscow (22 November 1949).
If you are celebrating “Día del niño 2013” in Panama, Happy Children’s day and may the day be used to share family, love and establishing safe environment for Children!
