November 20 is World Children's Day (also known as Universal Children's Day), celebrated each year to promote international togetherness and awareness among children worldwide, and improve children's welfare.

November 20 is notable for a few reasons -- 1. It is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, 2. it is also the date in 1989 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
