Haven’t posted since Pepero Day! Had a little photography over-load when my mom was visiting. Dusted off the trust camera and took some picture during Christmas. Here are some highlights:
This was the first snow in Korea to stick! It wasn’t very much, maybe about a centimeter. My friend Sunny told me there is this funny and somewhat romantic tradition that some young Koreans do during the first snow. A couple makes a promise to meet at a certain place the night of the first snow. The couple usually picks a place like a coffee shop and then you meet up with your date. But what is considered the first snow is the real question. But whatever the couple decided they know to go to that certain place. It’s cute and romantic. But Sunny said nowadays it’s just an excuse to meet up at a love hotel. I guess it’s just another way to stay warm.
It’s snowing in Korea! But sadly it doesn’t accumulate. It just makes it all cold and wet. (I hate cold and wet) The snowflakes were pretty huge. It started around lunchtime today. During my class after lunch the students rushed to the window when it started to snow really hard.
Then one kid said, “OH I can see Santa Claus!”
The other kids rushed over and said, “Really? Really Santa?”
One by one each kid was like “OH yes I can see him too!”
Imaginary Santa Claus flying through the air in a down pour of powdery snow…
Christmastime is here.
