In the parks and squares of Alanya and other cities of the country, on the day of the holiday or on the eve, you can meet holiday vans organized by local authorities, from which music plays, and children are given small bright gifts – balls, caps, sweets. Performances and festive processions take place in the central squares, and in the evening the city patrol congratulates all residents with a festive ride with sirens, flashing lights and music along all the main streets.

Traditionally, during the holiday celebrations, children from other countries come to Turkey to get acquainted with the culture and traditions of the Republic of Turkey. In countries where there are Turkish schools, the holiday is also celebrated with the support of the embassies.

The wide scope and high status of the holiday on April 23 every time makes us think about how important it is to support and protect the younger generation, and to try to build a better, more prosperous world for our children. The very fact that the holiday dedicated to children is at the same time the country’s National Sovereignty  Day makes it very clear that children are our future, that they are our greatest treasure and hope, our continuation and happiness. Their life tomorrow depends on how much we are aware of our actions today, their attitude towards us as those about whom they will then take care of, taking the reins into their own hands, depends on what we do now. In this sense, family traditions are very strong in Turkey, in which respect and reverence for the older generation are the foundations of building a society.

Family values ​​are incredibly important here, and any real business of each family member can exist and develop only if they are supported by their elders. This approach seems rather tough and conservative, however, it guarantees at least stability, and with certain skills, growth and prosperity.

Together with natural diligence, perhaps thanks to the commitment of the Turkish people to nepotism, the country managed to raise the economy to a qualitatively new level in a fairly short period. In conditions of constant external turbulence and instability, thanks to the ability to rely on real values, strengths of character and love for children, the country manages to achieve incredible success in various fields.
