So Christmas is almost done in my neck of the woods. I’m writing this at 10pm on Christmas day. I’m not full from turkey and I didn’t get presents. I didn’t wake up early and I didn’t spend the day with my family. It’s certainly a strange feeling.
Christmas in Korea is strange. It’s seen as a couple’s holiday. A day where they hang out together and go shopping, or whatever else Korean couples do. What did a single Canadian do for Christmas in Korea? I’ll tell you.
Last night I went to a house party hosted by a Canadian and her Korean boyfriend. After that I crashed at my place with two of my Korean buddies. We woke up this morning, watch Transporter 3, ate breakfast and left for Seoul, where we went different paths. I met with another Korean friend in Seoul to go shopping for snowpants and gloves (ski trip this weekend). After a few hours of searching, we found some pants, but no gloves. I need them for this weekend, so I guess I’ll pick some up tomorrow after work.
Oh, yeah, and I’m working on Boxing Day. I don’t teach a class, but I need to physically be at school. This was decided yesterday (Christmas eve) by the head honchos.
Anyway, to those reading this on Christmas day, merry Christmas!
