Chuseok(추석) Celebrating and Learning

20110910-104713.jpg

Chuseok is Korean Thanksgiving basically for the end of a harvest and to pay respect to ancestors.  It’s starts a different day each year because it follows the lunar calendar and lasts for 3 days – this year it is September 12th.

In school we learned about the tea ceremony, making rice cakes, a traditional food layout, how to do proper big bows, and Korean games (제기자기).
