Happy chuseok!!

Friday, September 28, 2012

Happy Friday and Chuseok for this Sunday - Chuseok is the Korea equivalent of Thanksgiving where families gather together and spend time together. It's a big national holiday, though I only just realised how significant it was. People give presents to each other. I never realised! I also received some. ;) Koreans also pay respect to their deceased ancestors, visiting the family burial site and tending to it, preparing lots of food all day...

Not sure how it will be in our family, because many of them are not here, but I'm still super excited to be seeing my Yeosu gran this weekend, finally! :)
