My favorite holiday approaches

My kids always ask me:

"Dad, what's your favorite holiday?"

"I see it! I see it! There it is!"

Surely, they assume, it must be Christmas or Halloween, possibly even Thanksgiving ... or how about Fourth of July? "Do birthdays count as holidays?" inevitably enters the debate.

I shake my head no to them all and answer Groundhog Day instead.

"Whaaat? That doesn't make sense!" They laugh in dismay.

"Someday you'll understand," I cryptically assure them.

The charismatic groundhog

Dads are sometimes difficult to understand.
