Homework Help: English Grammar

Posted by John on Monday, April 28, 2008 at 11:10am.

Mother's Day is the second Sunday in May in America. Americans celebrate Father's Day, too. It's the third Sunday in June. In Korea, we honor our mother and father on the same day. It is Parents' Day. What day is it this year?
1. It is Parents' Day.
2. What day is it this year?

In the passage above, I think the meaning of 'it' is different in each sentence.

In #1 'it' means an impersonal pronoun.

However in #2, 'it' refers
to 'Parent's Day', isn't it? (In this case, 'it' is a personal pronoun.) Am I right?
