어린이날 Children’s Day in Korea
Koreans celebrate Children’s Day on May 5th. It was created in 1923 by the children’s author and advocate 방정환 Bang Jeong Hwan. The day is a reminder to all to cherish, respect, and care for our children. It sounds like fun to celebrate as a kid in Korea with celebrations, special TV-programs, trips to the zoo or amusement park, and maybe a present or special meal.
Many of you were so kind to take the time and share how you celebrated Children’s Day growing up or how you plan to with your kids. You shared that you would get gifts, have special events in school, go to the park, or do other fun activities together.
A lot of us agreed most days feel like Children’s Day for our kids. 🤣 But, I love the idea of a special day to remember how special children are – to cherish them and respect them. We might forgo gift giving, but take time to do something together as a family. Whatever you choose, you can print this sheet for some coloring fun. It reads, 즐거운 어린이날 (jeul-geo-eun eo-rin-i-nal) Happy Children’s Day!
