Teacher's Day

Teacher's Day
Teachers' Day in Russia is celebrated on October 5.
On the same day, the professional holiday is celebrated by teachers in many other countries, since in 1994 UNESCO approved the World Teachers Day on October 5.

On October 5, 1966, the first official document "On the Status of Teachers" was adopted at an international conference. That is why World Teachers Day is celebrated on this day.

Before the October Revolution, public education was developing in Russia, that is, patrons of art were engaged in teaching the children of workers and peasants. Among such patrons were Lev Tolstoy, Anton Chekhov.
After the revolution in the Soviet school, the role of the teacher was extremely important. The teacher, the teacher was often the hero of legends, films, books, party meetings.
In the USSR, Teachers' Day began to be celebrated in 1965. However, Teacher's Day was then celebrated on the first Sunday in October (this tradition is still in some cities).

Since 1994, for convenience (so that teachers can be congratulated right at school), the holiday was officially combined (united) with World Teachers Day and began to be celebrated on October 5.

Traditionally, on this day, students and their parents congratulate teachers on the holiday, give flowers and small gifts. Schools often host holiday concerts or self-government days when students take on the role of teachers in the classroom.
Also on this day or on the eve of the awarding of the winners of the competition "Teacher of the Year", which has been held since 1990.

Usually the holiday is celebrated only in schools. But truth be told, this is not just schoolteacher's day. Therefore, we advise you to congratulate your teachers at school, college, teachers at the university, or your tutor. They will be very pleased.
