Korean Thanksgiving or Chuseok (추석) is the most celebrated holiday in South Korea. It's usually celebrated in the months of September or October (so you probably missed it). For three days, many people travel back to their hometowns to visit their familys and the graves of their ancestors. Of course, the traditions vary depending on religions, but there is usually at least one family feast. Some traditional foods include songpyun, a half-moon rice cake stuffed with any number of ingredients and steamed on a bed of pine needles.
