Chuseok

30 September 2009

Korean Thanksgiving is upon us here in Korealand.  Chuseok is a holiday much like ours back home were families get together and over eat.

In my lessons this week I incorporated some of our Thanksgivingness to my kids here.  Like drawing a turkey from the outline of your hand.  (Unfortunately, they all thought it was a chicken on fire.)

Around Korea stores are packed with people, prices have been hiked, gift sets have been pulled to the front, and Korean women have started to dread the long weekend that must be spent with their in-laws.

I have three days free from work and the monkeys and do not have any elaborate Chuseok plans.  Instead,  I intend to bike across a small Japanese island called Tsushima.  Nothing major.

Until then…
