Happy Valentine’s Day

Today is the day for love. Of course, the 14th of every month is a day for love in Korea (https://thekoreanway.wordpress.com/2010/04/15/love-days-in-korea/).

Yes, Korea does celebrate Valentine’s Day but not in the same way we do in the United States. Feb. 14 in Korea is the day for females to give gifts, often chocolates, to the males they love. Yep, you read that right, ladies–no flowers or chocolates for you on Feb. 14 if you live in Korea.

But don’t think you’ve been forgotten; your day is White Day on March 14 (https://thekoreanway.wordpress.com/2010/03/14/white-day-march-14/). Just wait one month and your sweetheart should reciprocate.

Valentine’s Day isn’t a big deal in our house. Little guy usually draws me a picture and we’ll go out for dinner as a family. Tonight it’s our favorite Korean restaurant so I’m looking forward to kimchi jeon, bibimbap, and lots of banchan.
