Folk games enrich the holidays

South Korea (대한민국)

Bayramlar Kore’de aile, şölen ve geleneksel folklör oyunlarının zamanıdır. Seollal (Kameri Yılbaşı), geçmiş mutlu zamanlar ile bağdaştırılan bir bayram olsa da, Chuseok’un hasat kameri(dolunay) festivali, atalara ve topluluğa şükran ve saygı göstermeye odaklanan kutlumaları ile ayrı bir yere sahiptir. Bu folklör oyunları sadece Kore’deki hasat kutlamalarının değil aynı zamanda tarih ve insanlık onurunun idrakine eriştirir.

The holidays are a time for family, feasts and, in Korea, traditional folk games. Although Seollal (the Lunar New Year’s Day) is the holiday most associated with the light-hearted pastimes, the harvest moon festival of Chuseok is also distinguished in its celebrations, which focus more on the giving of thanks and paying respects to our ancestors and community. These folk games offer an insight not only into the celebration of the harvest in Korea, but also into the history and humor of the people.
