Wintermute here bringing you your daily dose of Dumbr. Ya know a lot of people ask me, Winter, why do you call this site Dumbr? I then ask them, have you read the comments people leave? Naw I’m playing, I love you guys and thanks for being here on day 2 of our new segment, Holidays.
Today we talk about childrens day, the one day of the year to recognize you have kids. As if children needed more attention they now have an entire day centered all on them. And I mean all on them, every step and action you take you take for your child. Whatever they want to do you will bend to their will and forfeit any idea of escapism you had to appease their selfish desires.
But it’s not all bad; one of the biggest issues Japan and Korea are dealing with right now is family living. Parents work all day and stay out until 9 or 10 with co-workers getting plastered, and students are at school anywhere from 7pm to midnight 6 days out of the week. It is very rare to ever see a parent with their offspring.
Which brings us to, Childrens Day. A well needed attempt to build social bonds amongst family members. Throughout the whole country you will see many events going on (mostly at parks), that are hosted for the intent of spending time with your kids. Most schools will be closed, and if your school isn’t closed there is a very small chance you will have a student in the room. So rejoice for this is a welcomed break from class and a good chance to get out and enjoy the weather.
The best part about Childrens day is that you, the teacher, do not have to spend time with children, truly glorious. A quick side note: The week after host Parents Day. Basically you dump your kids off at the grandparents and sneak away back home to enjoy each others company.
Thank you for being here, as always leave me comments and questions. I will see you tomorrow for Pepero Day!
