Christmas in Korea
A recent article said that Korea's Shinsegae Department Store displayed the most beautiful and spectacular Christmas decorations of all time this year. The purpose is to relieve those who are exhausted from Corona. They removed all promotional billboards, and added 400,000 more lights for the most spectacular show.
I have been living abroad for a long time, and there is one question that I hear the most frequently in the holiday seasons. Does it mean that Korea also has a Christmas ceremony? that is. Now, many people know about Korea well, so there are fewer questions like that, but in the past, many people thought that there were no Christmas trees in Korean homes. Perhaps they will be surprised if they walk in front of the Shinsegae Department Store in Korea.
However, this splendid Christmas was held during the war only 70 years ago. 6 .25 In the midst of the war, in 1951, the military soldier had to commemorate this day by hastily making a Christmas tree during the war.
But in the other word, just as the lanterns shine brighter as the darkness deepens, even after the devastating war, Koreans' love and aspirations for Christmas can be seen by looking at the Christmas cards below.
