Oh, and happy Wine Day. The 14th of each month is a holiday in Korea, and October 14th is Wine Day. Here are some shoppers at a Seoul E-Mart today:
And don't forget October 31st is "Ace Day," named after a brand of crackers and created to steal the thunder from a Western holiday. Next month's holiday is "Movie Day" and December has two: "Hug Day" and "Money Day." As ROK Hound said the last time I posted about this, most of these holidays are new inventions, and with the exception of Valentine's Day, White Day, Ace Day, and Peppero Day on November 11th, I've never heard of these occasions being marked.
