Every Autumn Equinox, Koreans celebrate the harvest with a three-day holiday called Chuseok (추석). To celebrate a good harvest, over 35 million Koreans will travel to their hometowns to honor ancestors and share a feast of traditional foods like songpyeon rice cakes and sindoju and dongdongju rice wines this year. While the exact traditions vary between celebrants in the Republic of Korea (South Korea) and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), both countries observe the holiday.
