Most people in Romania get a day off work and school for Children’s Day, and most businesses are closed. However, although it’s not a regular school day, there are typically school events around this date where teachers may give out awards to school children. And there are also many other public events, including art exhibits of art done by children.
Parents and grandparents often give gifts to their kids and grandkids on Children’s Day. And families will often take kids out for a fun day or have a special meal and a kid’s party at home. Additionally, there are media campaigns on Romanian TV, radio, newspapers, and Internet devoted to raising awareness of the importance and value of children and of the parent-child relationship in society.
