About this holy day
Declared October 1st, 1960 of the Heavenly Calendar (November 19th-solar).
This declaration was made on the day that the foundation on which the fallen people could be reborn through the True Parents into God’s lineage was established.
The fall of Adam and Eve, the first ancestors of humankind, occurred due to their adulterous relationship with the archangel. As a result, humankind had come to be born under the lineage of Satan. Overcoming the unimaginable trials of the cross, True Parents established “Parents’ Day.” On November 19th, 1960 (October 1st, by Heavenly Calendar) True Parents also declared “Children’s Day.”
“Children’s Day” represents the day that the foundation, on which fallen humankind could be born again by receiving the blessing from the True Parents was established globally and cosmically by the victorious True Parents. In other words, this day should be commemorated because it became possible that humankind could change their lineage from Satan’s lineage to God’s lineage. This established a procedure by which humankind could be registered as children of God from this day forward. In 1994, the Holy Day was renamed “True Children’s Day.
