Valentine's Day in Korea

Being a kindergarten teacher may not be my calling, but making fun, crafty projects with the kids sure is fun. Valentine's Day is a relatively new concept here in Korea. They put their own little twist on it as it's a day where the woman in the relationship is supposed to do something special for the guy, typically in the form of a box of chocolates. Then a month later on White Day, March 14th, the guys buy something white for their ladies. This sort of leaves a challenge for same sex relationships, huh. At school the kids had a hard time understanding that they were supposed to write valentines for each student in the class. I'm quite proud of the ones I made above and the kids loved getting them. They also were totally tickled when I explained to them that XOXO meant hugs and kisses.
