The Koreans are celebrating Chusok today. This is celebrated on the 15th day of the eight lunar month (in Sptemeber or October). it is a day set aside to honour deceased ancestors to in a ceremony called Charye, to thank them for good harvest. Like Lunar new year, it involves tens of millions of people travelling to their hometowns to tend graves and offer a feast.
This celebration is kinda like a combination of United States Thanksgiving and All Souls Day in the Philippines. They celebrate the two occasions in one . This is one of the most important holidays in Korean because families gather together. The Koreans at our work were off duty today that's why I worked from 2 to 7 pm. My Korean friend Mindy gave me a present for Chusok.. I also received a cute souvenier from my Thai friend Voa (shown on the pic..) Thanks guys!
Haeng bok Chusok! (Happy Thanksgiving)
