Christmas in Korea

Christmas, although celebrated, is not a big holiday, compared to Chuseok and Lunar New Years, in Korea. Most Koreans will keep it simple by giving a few gifts and attending church service on Christmas morning. Amusement Parks and shopping centers will have Christmas decor and celebrations but most families do not get into decorating trees and filling their home with holiday cheer like we do in the U.S. Remember Christmas is a relatively "new" holiday compared to Chuseok and New Year's.
