Today if you visit the Google Korea homepage you will find the Thanksgiving 2014 Korea Google Doodle. The day also known as the Thanksgiving, Mid-Autumn Festival falls in August or September and is one of the most important and celebrated holidays in Korea.

It is also traditional for Families to get together and celebrate the day with each other. Chuseok (Koren Thanksgiving) originally known as hangawi, from archaic Korean for "the great middle (of autumn), is a major harvest festival and a three-day holiday in Korea celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar.

Like many other harvest festivals around the world, it is held around the Autumn Equinox. Within East Asia, the timing coincides with that of the Chinese and Vietnamese Mid-Autumn Festival, as well as the Japanese Tsukimi.

In contemporary South Korea, on Chuseok (Koren Thanksgiving Day), there is a mass exodus of South Koreans from large cities as they return to their hometowns to pay respects to the spirits of their ancestors.

People perform ancestral worship rituals early in the morning. Then, they visit the tombs of their immediate ancestors to trim plants and clean the area around the tomb, and offer food, drink, and crops to their ancestors.

Harvest crops are attributed to the blessing of ancestors.

In today’s Google Doodle one can see several symbols associated with Korea Thanksgiving Day. We here at 3D Car Shows would like to wish all our Korean readers a Blessed Thanksgiving Day!
