No, it's not your birthday

Daniel is learning about holidays - most recently Halloween. But he doesn't yet "get" that they only come once a year.
"Is it my birthday?" He asks almost daily. "No, it's not your birthday."
"Is it my Christmas?" he asks. "No, it's not Christmas."
"Is it Easter time?" "No, it's not Easter, either."
"Well, what is it then?" he demads, sure there must be some occasion for presents.
"It's Tuesday."
"Oh, well is tomorrow my birthday?"
