Chuseok is one of the biggest and most important holidays in Korea. Family members from near and far come together to share food and stories and to give thanks to their ancestors.
 
This year, Chuseok Day falls on Monday, September 24. The holiday period is from September 23 to 26, including the day before and after Chuseok with September 26 being a replacement holiday due to the 23rd falling on a Sunday.
