Hello! This is staff Harriet from Leo Guesthouse.
From tomorrow until Monday (9.26-9.28) is the biggest holiday called 'Chu-seok'.
I am really sad that this huge holiday is on saturday and sunday.
Anyway I am going to tell you about 'Chu-seok' today!!
What do people do?
Families gather together and eat delicious foods.
Especially we eat ricecake called 'Song-pyun' and many different 'jeons'.
My parents are going to the city called Jeonju, where my grandparents live.
And my mom is cooking some foods for 3 days to take it to Jeonju.
We also visit ancestors' graves and have memorial services.
We cut the weeds around the graves before the services.
We put the some chu-seok foods, fruits and alcohol on the table and bow.
We thank our ancestors for the harvest.
There used to be a lot of traditional games played in Chu-seok.
Sadly the traditional games are not played very much these days.
One of the big games in Chu-seok is Korean wrestling called 'Ssireum'.
Ssireum competition is on the TV every Chu-seok.
Chu-seok is the 15th of August of the lunar calendar.
In ancient society, our ancestors worshipped the moon.
And the brightest moon of the year was on the 15th of August.
Our ancestors enjoyed the celebration under the bright moon.
