Who is celebrating Chuseok?

September 22nd is Chuseok. Time to eat lots and lots of rice cakes! :)

For those who don't know what Chuseok is.... Let me copy/paste from Wikipedia!

Chuseok (Korean: 추석), originally known as Hangawi (한가위) (from archaic Korean for "great middle"), 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.

I guess it's sort of like Thanksgiving day in Korea. Well whatever day it is, if it's a day where you get to eat bunch of yummy foods who can complain? :P

Don't forget to eat Songpyun next Wednesday!
