Not sure how we got here, but here we are on the first day of the last quarter of the year. Y’all, it’s October. Tonight is a Harvest Moon in October, but and it’s also Chuseok 추석—“Autumn’s Eve” but in American English, it’s referred to as “Korean Thanksgiving” (a misnomer but obvious why).
my family never celebrated 추석 growing up either. i wonder if some korean immigrant families feel pressure to let go of traditions and holidays to better assimilate :/
I think cultural traditions are a beautiful way to get further connected to one's identity... and Chuseok is full of delicious food! How could one go wrong? ;)
