As you all know I am behind on this blog. Chuesok was actually 2 October. "Chuseok is a major harvest festival and a three-day holiday in Korea celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. Like many other harvest festivals, it is held around the Autumn Equinox. As a celebration of the good harvest, Koreans visit their ancestral hometowns and share a feast of Korean traditional food." AKA, Korean Thanksgiving. So, on Chuesok us and our American friends decided not to let the holiday pass without a feast, and since our Army (and other branches of the military that live here on Yongsan) have Chuseok off we had a big Chuesok celebration at 'blue park'! Now granted it was not your 'traditional' Korean celebration, but we tried, we had songpyeong, yakimandu, bulgogi and a few other Korean dishes, but we also had chicken wings, bratwurst, burgers and more! It was a great evening to celebrate with friends!
Proud Army wife and mother to 4 wonderful children. I love to cook, travel, work out and scrapbook life’s adventures when I find the time. We just got orders & are heading back to the states in March 2010. I'm bummed that our time has been cut short, but proud of Hubby for the reason why.
