White Sunday is a holiday celebrated in Samoa, Tokelau, and American Samoa on the second Sunday in October. The Monday after White Sunday is an official public holiday in Tokelau and Samoa.

White Sunday can be regarded as the equivalent of Children’s Day. This day was set aside for communities and parents to acknowledge and celebrate childhood. White Sunday is marked with special church services and cultural events (such as dance performances). On the occasion of the holiday, children receive gifts and are allowed some privileges typically reserved for adults.
