How The Children of The Nineties Used to Celebrate Independence Day is Unknown to The Children of The 21st Century
Love for the country is part of the human spirit, this is the reason why people all over the world celebrate the Independence Day of their country with great enthusiasm. Khrush was seen among the children of the nineties regarding the celebration of this day, but it is missing among the children of this era. Today’s kids who are children of the digital age and social media era have limited their every expression of passion to social media and they don’t seem ready to do anything practically compared to the 90’s. Children of the 1990s practically did many things that the new generation seems to be missing out on
1: Preparation of flags

4: Purchase of colorful badges and bangles
