Today, October 3rd, is a holiday in South Korea. We are celebrating “kae-cheon-jeol” (Hangeul: ê°œì²œì ˆ) or National Foundation Day. Here’s a Youtube video made by Daniel Lee (MRSS,8, Maple Ridge, BC, Canada) so you’d know more about how Korea was founded. (Not to be taken literally.)
October 9th, which is a Sunday, is also the day we celebrate the making of “Hangeul” (í•œê¸€) or the Korean alphabet. I posted a story about “King Sejong and Hangeul Day” last year.
Since we have two Korean celebrations this month, our blog giveaway is also about Korea. Here are the prizes:
Book: Facts About Korea (never read)
CD: The Best of Korean Songs (unopened)
Mother-of-pearl metallic business card holder (never used)
Mother-of-pearl USB flash disk (never used)
I don’t know the capacity of the USB flash disk, though. I’ve never used it, but the design is truly Korean. This blog giveaway will run until October 12th at 11:59 PM. I will post the winner on October 14th, Friday. Like before, only one comment entry per human being ;p and this contest is open internationally.
I hope I can have it this time.
Should read more about korean history.
I envy you don’t have work today ã… .ã…
