The Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving Day) holiday will be celebrated from September 20 (Mon) to 24 (Fri), and M3 will be closed during this period.



Our office and factory will be closed during Sep. 20 (Mon) to 24 (Fri) to celebrate Chuseok when family members who live scattered in distant places get together for a reunion. Chuseok is August 15th according to the lunar calendar and kind of like Thanksgiving Day. M3 employees will celebrate the holidays in their own way and start working from 27th of Sep (Mon).


What’s Chuseok

Chuseok, originally known as Hangawi (from archaic Korean for "great middle"), is a major harvest festival in Korea celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. Like many other harvest festivals, it is held around the Autumn Equinox. As a celebration of the good harvest, Koreans visit their ancestral hometowns and share a feast of Korean traditional food.


Traditional customs

In modern South Korea, on Chuseok there is a mass exodus of Koreans returning to their hometowns to pay respects to the spirits of one's ancestors. People perform ancestral worship rituals early in the morning. They often visit the tombs of their immediate ancestors to trim plants and clean the area around the tomb, and offer food, drink, and crops to their ancestors. Harvest crops are attributed to the blessing of ancestors.

One of the major foods prepared and eaten during the Chuseok holiday is Songpyeon, a crescent-shaped rice cake which is steamed upon pine needles. Other dishes commonly prepared are Japchae, Bulgogi and fruits.
