Happy New Year...

The Lunar New Year is being celebrated this weekend. It is a 3 day holiday in Korea. Unfortunately, this year it falls on a weekend, so it is only one extra day off work.
The kindy boss once again gave gifts to all of the teachers. Last time it was a soap/toothpaste set. This time it is a huge box of han-gua - puffy rice cake snack thingies. They are semi-tasteless, except for a bit of a honey taste. If I had a choice, I'd rather just get the money. A huge box of these little rice thingies is too much for one person. I don't mind them, but just cannot eat that many.
For the Lunar New Year, Korean kids typically get money from their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, etc.
