Giving Thanks Around the World
Dig in and feast on fruitful knowledge about different countries -- including Korea, India and Ghana -- that give thanks by throwing festivals to commemorate a great harvest and year.Filed under:
Chuseok, a major harvest festival and 3-day holiday in Korea, is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. Koreans return to their hometowns to perform traditional rituals in the morning to remember their ancestors. Family members also visit and clean up the area around the tombs of their immediate ancestors, before offering food, drink and crops to their lost loved ones. Japchae, bulgogi and songpyeon (a crescent-shaped rice cake) are popular foods prepared during the holiday.
