Chuseok Holiday Vacation

Today Chuseok Holiday is started today in South Korea and millions of people have already made the arduous journey to their cities and province.
This year (2011) Chuseok will be celebrated on the 12th day of the 9th month in the lunar calendar, when the moon is believed to be at its fullest.
Many other Asian cultures also celebrate a harvest or moon festival on this day. Chuseok used to be called Hangawi (한가위), but more recently it is called “Chusu Gamsa Jol", meaning "harvest appreciation day" in direct translation.
