March 20 is Wear Your Favorite Sweater Day, in honor of Mr. Rogers. That date would have been his 80th birthday.
When I was a kid, I wanted a sweater with a zippered front so I could be more like Mr. Rogers. I ended up sewing a zipper onto a sweater I already had. Now I wish I could be more like Mr. Rogers as a parent and role model and gentle, caring, compassionate human being.
But I still wouldn't mind having a cool zippered sweater.
