Children's Day

Because receiving presents at Christmas, and at each of two birthday celebrations simply isn't enough. Children deserve more! More presents, more candy, and more recognition. Let's start a national Children's Day.This year Children's Day is on Saturday but because it is on a Saturday we had to do a special celebration in class on Friday. The teachers all bought pizza for the kids for lunch and then for a portion of the afternoon we played games with the kids. The afternoon classes got snack parties for the last twenty minutes of class. The school gave each of the kids a t-shirt and they even had an adult sized one for me. Our classrooms had to be specially decorated for the day. It turned into a three day holiday because Sunday service is a special kid celebration service where they read the scriptures and help with the praise songs.It is actually a good celebration because it turns into a family day for the whole country. We met a family on the subway who were heading to Yeouido Park for a picnic and then soccer. Many other families had similar plans. Many of the businesses closed for the day. They take recognition of their kids seriously!
