A Happy New Year Wish

Lee

Our son Specialist Lee Alejandre wished us a “Happy New Year!” from his Army post overseas using his iSight camera and iChat AV connection. It was 12:01 am, January 1, for us in Philadelphia, PA, but it was 2:01 pm for him in Seoul, South Korea!

My husband and I were talking about the time zones. I looked on the web and found that Philadelphia is about 203 degrees of longitude west of Seoul. Once we realized that there are 360 degrees of longitude and there are 24 hours in a day, we understood why there is a 14 hour difference in time.
