White Day

It's good being a girl in Korea when White Day rolls around. White Day happens on March the 14th, exactly a month after Valentine's day, which is no coincidence. Apparently Valentine's day is solely for women to give the men in their life a gift of chocolate. A month later, the men are expected to return the favor, three fold.

It's also tradition in Korean schools for the students to share presents with their friends. As Elementary school teachers, we were incredibly lucky and got showered by gifts from the children. Mostly they gave lollipops or small bits of chocolate, but other students had prepared goody bags filled with a mixture of things.

Nick and I went for a skate/run in Busan after school on White day (unfortunately it proved how unfit I am as he was able to run faster than I could skate!). I forewarned him that my students had set a high standard, but I wasn't disappointed. When I went to pick up my stuff I had a nice surprise waiting for me in my locker, accompanied by a somewhat questionable letter.

So, happy belated White Day to all the girls!

You don't have to wait until White Day rolls around again for some treats though! Enter my giveaway that's running all this week and a Korean care package could be making its way to you! Just like the facebook page or follow me on Bloglovin'.
