Ten bazillion points if you can name what movie that's from. If you don't know, you should google it and then watch it. Ten bazillion times.
It's Christmas time Ladies and Gents. What does that mean for us English teachers in South Korea? It means another year lacking candy canes, real Christmas trees, absurdly over decorated store fronts, and crowded shopping malls. Christmas isn't really big in Korea. At least not in Pohang. Our main shopping street won't get Christmas lights put up until next week. Yes, it takes them forever to put them up, but oddly enough, they keep them up until mid-February.
Christmas time also brings with it our school Christmas party. My fellow co-workers and I got started 3 hours earlier than usual this morning so that we could shop around for decorations for our partay.
This is what we found.
At first glance it appears to be a wonderful Christmas wonderland, until you realize that it's quite possibly all of the decorations in Korea. This was quite literally everything that we found. We settled on some festive hats, tinsel, wrapping paper, ribbons, and supplies for our Christmas craft.
Claire got to work on creating a beautiful snowman while I made little presents to hang everywhere. Aria and Landis, being the taller girls in the group, hung everything up for us.
