Silver Day

As mentioned previously, South Korea observes a monthly holiday on the 14th of each month.  As promised, here is an update on the holiday for July.

Today is “Silver day” in South Korea.  Couples celebrate the holiday by giving each other silver jewelry.  Often rings are exchanged to symbolize commitment, especially if the couple has been together for one hundred days or more.   

The number 100 is significant here, and shows that the relationship is getting serious.  Couples may also give necklaces, bracelets or silver earrings to celebrate Silver Day.

Maybe I should remind Ryan that there’s a Tiffany’s in the local mall….
Just sayin :)

Happy Silver Day everyone!
