I’m quickly learning that Koreans live by the mantra “all or nothing”. They bring a certain level of intensity to the table whether it’s in regards to academics, drinking, or in this case, religion.

This week, sixth grade is learning vocabulary pertaining to birthdays and important holidays. My co-teacher asked me to develop a quiz-like “game”  using PowerPoint, requesting that I list a series of clues that would eventually enable students to guess the correct English name and date of a famous day. She kindly provided the clues for me after I discovered the difficulty in describing a holiday I’ve never experienced (Planter’s Day, Children’s Day…). You’ll find the slide for one of our holidays below.

He is the standard for one year.

B.C. means before He was born.

He is God, our Lord.

Bet you didn’t see that one coming. Let’s give it up for separation of church and state.
