Teacher's Day Loot

Today (May 15th) is teacher's day here in Korea. Sadly, it's not celebrated by giving teachers a day off from work (although this year it's on a Sunday so we don't have to work anyway) but it IS celebrated by exorbitant gifts for teachers. Which I do not protest. This year I didn't expect to get much at all, since I only started 3.5 months ago, but I was surprised by what I did receive. Socks, chocolates, perfume, a flower card and a few little pieces of gum and candy from kids who felt bad that they had no gifts to give me. The presents aren't nearly as good as when I was a preschool teacher, but I can't complain.
