Happy Day After Valentine’s Day! You might not be celebrating it like we are, because we couldn’t celebrate it yesterday, on actual Valentine’s Day, because we were sick with a cold. So we went out today for a nice brunch and looked at each other lovingly, but then started coughing profusely and so we went back home and napped for a few hours. SO ROMANTIC! So for those of you who are lamenting about being forever alone on Valentine’s Day, at least you got to go out and do something fun rather than run through a box of tissues with your snot, right? Right? At least, I hope so. If you were sick AND single then, damn, that must have really been sucky for you.
Big respect to the guy who was motivated on Valentine’s Day, and who interpreted it as a sign that he should try harder instead of wallowing in misery. I didn’t hear much of that on the internet lately. Props, bro.
Otherwise, that Korean couple that showed up in the video and talked about Valentine’s Day, and he asked her if she’s getting him chocolate, I’m not sure how many of you know about how Valentine’s Day is in Korea. We did a video on it A REALLY LONG TIME AGO, but I wouldn’t watch it if I were you. It’s so…bad. I’ll just explain it to you in text here. Much better in text. Ahem: girls get guys chocolate on Valentine’s Day. If the guy accepts the chocolate, he has to get her special things on White Day on March 14. So, Valentine’s Day isn’t really as big here in Korea as White Day. Here’s something interesting we just discovered as well: when we were looking at the Valentine’s Day chocolates here in Korea, we didn’t really notice anything special about them. In Canada, I remember seeing heart-shaped Reese Peanut Butter Cups, and cinnamon hearts, and pink M&Ms, and all that, but it’s not really like that here. The chocolate is the same here, and we wondered why for a bit, until we realized that if a girl is getting her Korean boyfriend a chocolate, I don’t think he’s gonna care much if it’s heart shaped or not. Once he accepts the chocolate, the oath has been taken. The shape of the chocolate doesn’t matter, right? For White Day, though, things will be fancier. Or, at least, this is what we’re guessing. We just thought of it this year. We’ll see in a month if it works. And, hopefully, next month we won’t spend White Day snotting and napping :D
