Children's Holidays and Observances

Our Children's Holidays and Observances summary page will include all Observance and Awareness days related to infants, kids, and teens. We'll include days that are related to children, and days that are honoring those such as teachers and school librarians and school nurses that work specifically with children.  We do have some of the Health Awareness Days that are related to infants, children, and teens also listed here, but have not included those related to both children and adults. We have also included some of the Family Holidays here, but not all of them.

Below, listed by month are the Children's Holidays and Observances, that we are aware of so far. There may a few duplicates or incorrect dates, there may be some that we have left off that we will add as we find them, and there are some that are similar, but have different Sponsor Organizations that started the Observances, that may have different approaches and info. As we delve into all the details, we will fix any issues.

Ultimately, there will be a devoted page done for each of the different 
Children's Holidays and Observances.  As pages are completed, they will be linked up below, as well as in our Daily Holiday pages, our Holidays by Month pages, and our Holidays and Observances Alphabetical Listing.
