Two Days a Year

The scenario is that you live two days a year every year, as in a "Ground Hog Day" x 2.  Which two days would they be?

I expect lots of people would say their Birthday and Christmas.  Considering this is Gerry's Birthday - wish him a Full Steam Ahead Birthday Wish!

Now choosing our birthday and Christmas - that's for us North Americans. Would it be normal in China to choose Chinese New Year?  Maybe it depends which zodiac year you are born in. This year it is the year of the Dog.  Congratulations Dezi - this year is named after you!

Your zodiac year is considered unlucky.  It's seen as a hurdle you have to jump over. The way to protect yourself from evil spirits and bad fortune is to wear red underwear every day for the entire year.  

You can look up your zodiac animal on the chart HERE. Or to find out if it is your year, check if your age is a multiple of 12. The zodiac cycle repeats every 12 years.

What if you have more than two days that are your favourite days?  Winnie the Pooh certainly had this perspective on the question: 

"What day is it?"  asked Pooh.
"It's today", squeaked Piglet.
"My favourite day", said Pooh.
