Dad, you're someone to look up to no matter how tall I've grown.

In most countries, Father's Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June - 
but in Taiwan, the date is special with a unique meaning.
The Taiwanese celebrate the holiday on August 8th - 
in Chinese, the number 8 is pronounced as "ba", similar to "ba" with a stronger tone that means "pa" or "dad/father". So they call Father's Day the "8 8 Holiday", pronounced as "ba-ba Holiday".

Isn't it sweet?
Yes, the Chinese language C":

❝One father is more than a hundred Schoolmasters.❞
~George Herbert, Outlandish Proverbs, 1640

❝The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God; I call him Dad!❞
