September 10th is Day of the Child in Honduras. Known as (Dia de los Niños). Honduran children celebrate at home, school, with their friends and at parties held by many organizations. It is customary in Honduras for Teachers, Merchants and really adults as a whole to honor the kids special day throughout the country.
On this day children can within reason get away with just about anything as this is “their day”. Gifts are given out by NGO’s and businesses as well as the customary piñata.
As is customary during graduations, you are supposed to say “Congratulations” to all kids.
However since gifts are customary, why not consider developing a special talent of the kids or furthering their education. Here is a list of various cultural centers in Honduras where you can send kids a gift for their future.
