Topic 10# Are the end of year holidays important in your country?

Coming from the US, people often refer to the holiday season as from Thanksgiving to the New Year’s Day.

Do you have a holiday season in your country as well?

What do people do then?

Do they give gifts to people, if so, who?

    In Korea, we have quite many holidays such as New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and so on.
    Especially on New Year’s Day and Thanksgiving Day, all the family members get together and eat our traditional food enjoying traditional games or talking about family things.
    We eat ‘ddok gook’ (it’s kind of soup with ddok, meat, egg, etc) on New Year’s Day, and eat ‘Song Pyun’ (it’s one kind of ddok with something in it and it can be sesame or beans) on Thanksgiving Day.
    Older people give New Year’s gifts to the young family members on New Year’s Day and Family members visit their ancestor’s grave on Thanksgiving Day.
    On Christmas Day, we don’t eat something special but usually eat cake and exchange gifts with friends and parents give them to the kids.
    I’m Catholic so on Christmas Day and Eve, I always go to church.
