Chinese Father’s Day

The pronunciation for “eight” in Chinese is “ba”.  “Ba ba” is Chinese for Dad.  So August 8 (8-8) is ba ba day or Father’s Day!  Remember how I grew up in Taiwan?  My Dad was lucky, because he got to have two days we celebrated Father’s Day.  We still acknowledge it so I had my girls color cards for their daddy.
