Happy Groundhog's Day!

So today we had a lesson about Groundhog's Day. To begin the lesson, the teacher asked if any of the students knew about Groundhog's day already. Here were the answers:

Boy 1: "Isn't that the day we give valentimbes (aka valentines) to each other?

Teacher: "No...not that, that's Valentine's Day and comes later in the month."

Girl 1: "Oh, Oh, I know! That's the day we go huntin' for groundhogs and when you catch 'em you put them in a pot and make stew out of them!"

It took my teacher and I a little while to compose ourselves after that one. Oh the joy of hanging out with five year olds!
