Google doodle recognizes Children’s Day in Costa Rica

September 9, 2014

Google celebrated Costa Rica’s Children’s Day on Tuesday with one of the search giant’s iconic doodles (only visible in Costa Rica). Since 1946, Costa Rica has dedicated Sept. 9 to recognizing and guaranteeing the rights of children. Costa Rica’s Culture Ministry held theatrical events and other family activities at the National Theatre in San José as part of the celebration. Schools across the country also held special recreational activities.
