Teacher's day in Uzbekistan
General concept of the holiday
Humanity is arranged in such a way that the young generation takes over from the elder one its experience, knowledge and skills. Even in primitive times, it was common to share responsibilities in the community of people: the stronger people went to the hunt, and wiser ones brought up and passed on the accumulated experience of the youth.
From early childhood we go to school for knowledge. The teacher becomes our second parent. We listen to the teacher, take over his experience and knowledge.
Teachers and tutors are people without whom we would not have been individuals, would not have received vital skills and knowledge. 1st of October - Teacher's Day in Uzbekistan is a possibility to express appreciation to these prominent people on their professional festive occasion.
History of origin of the Teacher’s Day
Until the middle of the 20th c., nobody thought of honoring people who are engaged in the enlightenment of children, adolescents and even adults. But in 1944, US officials received a letter from a simple teacher from the state of Arkansas. She asked directly to single out a day in the year for the congratulations of all those who were engaged in the education of the young generation. And only 9 years later, such a holiday was established in the USA. It was celebrated on Tuesday of the first full May week.
Earlier, the holiday was asseverated in the USSR on September 29, 1965. It was solemnized on the first Sunday in October. Today in Uzbekistan the Teacher’s Day is commemorated on October 1. In Uzbekistan it has been celebrated since 1997.
