Valentine's Day is New Year's Day

Valentine's Day is New Year's Day. Would you believe that? It just happened that Seollal or Chinese New Year is on February 14th, Valentine's Day. I've been staying here in Korea for almost 10 years and it's my first time to celebrate Valentine's Day as a Chinese New Year. So, instead of going out with my hubby to have a date, I have to stay in my parent in laws' house to help with the cooking, preparing food and washing the dishes. And what is worst about it is, the 3 days vacation is on Saturday, Sunday and Monday again. Why are vacations always happen on weekends? Enough for my complains, the calendar won't help me anyway.

We are going to my in law's house after work on Friday evening. My hubby wanted to go there on Saturday evening but after watching the drama last night, we realized that we needed to go there earlier so that we could help them a lot. Unlike what we always did before. We always arrived there when there's a little thing to do so I always go with the dishes and couldn't help a lot in cooking. I felt so sorry for my sister in law who always did the side dishes. I never heard her complained but even when she doesn't, I have to do my job as a myeonori (daughter in law).
