It always snows on December 8th

When I checked the weather update on my phone last week, I smiled at the prediction that it will snow on Wednesday, December 8th. Seven years in Korea and it never fails to snow on that date. I remember because the first snowfall when I first came here was on the same date, a day after my birthday ;p

Heavy snowfall on December 27, 2009

It hasn’t really snowed today but the prediction is 2-5 cm will fall today. The snow boots I ordered has not arrived yet. I don’t want to fall on my butt again like the previous years! Don’t forget to take your vitamins and supplements. Be healthy!


  1. belated Happy Birthday, Ms. Betchay! πŸ™‚ may you have many, many more wonderful years. thanks for being a big help for people who wish to discover Korea, and may you continue to do so.

  2. Happy Birthday po ulit, ate Betchay.
    wala tayong gathering ah..
    as if naman makakapunta pa ko…kkk…
    punta kami kina Cher this fri. sana makadaan ulit ng dongdaemun or namsan tower man lang…

  3. Wow! you are a December baby like me. Belated Happy Birthday Ms. Betchay. I hope next year I will be able to spend my birthday there in Seoul. Kahit malamig pag may snow, minsan ko lang naman siyang maexperience kaya gusto ko. πŸ˜€

  4. yes! it did snow during that day…I was in Korea last November 26-Decemeber 23,2008. That was my first time to see a real snow hehehehe

  5. Hi,
    What month does the snow start to fall in South Korea? We’re going to Seoul on November 30-December 4 this year, do you think we can have a taste of snow during this time?
    Thank you so much! πŸ™‚

    1. It’s usually the first week of December in Seoul. In my first seven winters here, it had always snowed on December 8th ;p

  6. Thank you so much, Ms. Betchay! Here’s looking forward to having some snow fall on our hair when we visit there soon. Thanks again and take care. πŸ™‚
