KOREA: Chuseok

Celebrate Chuseok

Chuseok 2021 – A Korean Thanksgiving

Chuseok, or “autumn eve,” is the annual Korean three-day festival celebrating the end of summer and the autumn harvest. Chuseok is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month on the lunar calendar.

Traditional elements of Chuseok include paying respect to familial ancestors by visiting their graves (seongmyo), tidying the gravesites (beolcho), and bringing families together to prepare and present food and offerings to ancestors (charye). Food is an important part of celebrating Chuseok: families cook and feast together, using locally grown and harvested items.
