Today is a national holiday in Japan - Culture Day or Bunka no Hi. The purpose of the holiday is to promote culture, the arts, and academic endeavour. I have the day off from work and I am thinking about how I will spend it. I've pulled out this UFO - the Kogin bag I started a long time ago. I don't know if I will keep working on it after today, but I figure working on a Japanese needlework technique today qualifies as culture.
Depending on the weather today, I may go to a festival or I may stay home. If I stay home and read a book, does that count as academic endeavor?
