Chuseok Greetings

This is my 12th Chuseok and I’m not going to post about what we do during Chuseok. I did that several times already and last year, I posted about what happens before, during and after Chuseok.

This year, we’re celebrating Chuseok from September 7 to 9. The actual day is on September 8. How do people greet each other on this special holiday in Korea? Here are a few Chuseok greetings that you can use for your Korean family or friends…
