Apple Day!

Fun fact: the Korean word for “apple” also sounds like the Korean word for “fight”.  The word is 사과  which is pronounced as “sah-gwa”.  Schools around the country celebrate Apple Day as a chance for students who were fighting to make up.  Just give your previous enemy an apple and all is forgiven.


It is also a chance for students to suck up to their teachers, which I am perfectly fine with.  They wrote me a cute note to go along with my apple.



Personally, I think giving apples as an apology is a great idea.  If you have someone you want to say sorry to, just give them an apple.  Life is too short for fighting =D
