100 Things I Love About Korea # 48: House Warming Toilet Paper

House warming parties are a big tradition in Korea.  Any time someone moves to a new apartment, they are socially obligated to throw several parties (for the husband's coworker, for the wive's coworkers, for the family, for the friends, etc.). Traditional presents for these parties are household goods like cleaning supplies or, my personal favorite, toilet paper.  
We didn't have to buy toilet paper or laundry soap for more than a year.  That sure beats some random decorative item that most people never use.
