Have you ever heard of Chuseok? Chuseok is known as Korean Thanksgiving Day. This year, Chuseok is on Friday, September 13th. During this period, Korean have a three-day national holiday. So we meet our family again and visit our hometown.



 






Songpyeon




On Chuseok, family members talk together and share delicious food. Songpyeon is a typical Chuseok dish, which is a traditional Korean rice cake made with sesame, red beans, beans, etc. It looks like half-moon shape. An old Korean anecdote says that the person who makes beautifully-shaped songpyeon will meet a good spouse or give birth to a beautiful baby.




And we put food on our ancestors at Chuseok. So we serve a variety of dishes like korean pan cake, korean style meatball, using squid and so on.
