The 2009 school year has finally come to a close this week as schools around the country held graduation ceremonies for their 6th graders.  The school is going to be quiet over the next couple of weeks.  My only real concern is whether the new 3rd and 4th grade English books will arrive before school starts back in March.

Tomorrow is a special day in Korea and sees the start of Seollal, one of Korea’s biggest holidays.  Also know as the Lunar New Year, Seollal is a 3 day holiday celebrating the, you guessed it, first day of the lunar Korean calendar.  You can find further information on this holiday and the special events that are on here and here.
