Parents' Day

Today is Parents' Day. In Korea, Parents' Day is celebrated every May 8th of the year, just three days after Children's Day. Unlike in other countries, the celebration is not divided into a Mother's Day and Father's Day.

Since yesterday, i saw lots of carnation flowers in the market, shops, and some people on the bus were carrying them. They usually buy and give carnations in advance. Yesterday, my students asked me if i can dismiss the class 10 minutes earlier because they had to buy some presents for their parents. I didn't want but they begged me so i let them leave 5 minutes than our usual finished time.

Because i couldn't meet my Parents in law today so i just called them and said sorry for not visiting them in this kind of occasion. My mother in law said, just hearing my voice would be enough for them. Actually, i couldn't sleep last night thinking of what to say and when i got up this morning i dialed the phone and i finally felt relieved after hearing my mom in law's words. Thanks~

To my Parents and Parents In Law! Happy Parents' Day! I wish you a good health, a happy and a long life.
