5 May - Children's Day in Japan and South Korea
Almost every country has a holiday that celebrates children. Until recently in Japan, Tango no Sekku was known as Boys' Day (also known as Feast of Banners) while Girls' Day (Hinamatsuri) was celebrated on March 3. In 1948, the government decreed this day to be a national holiday to celebrate the happiness of all children and to express gratitude toward mothers. It was renamed Kodomo no Hi (Children's Day) and changed to include both boys and girls.
Children's Day in Korea is an important holiday. On this day, South Korea celebrates its most-loved inhabitants: its children. This public holiday is celebrated on May 5th every year in Korea. That means that salaried workers get a day off work and children get a day off school.
