Teacher's day 2022-05-16

🔽Teacher's day in South Korea

Originally it was started by a group of Red Cross youth team members who visited their sick ex-teachers in hospitals. Originally its date was 26 May. But since 1965, its date has been 15 May, Sejong the Great's birthday.[40]The national celebration ceremony was stopped between 1973 and 1982, but it resumed after that.[41] In 1982, it was revived again to create a climate that honors its mentor.[41] On the day, teachers are usually presented with carnations by their students and ex-students. It is illegal to present carnations to public school teachers under the anti-graft law.[42] -wikipedia
