With the start of October, there are two representative national holidays in our country. One is the National Foundation Day of Korea and the other is Hangeul Proclamation Day. Let's find out about the meaningful Korean national holidays.
The National Foundation Day of Korea is celebrated on October 3, and is a national holiday established to commemorate the founding of the first nation, Gojoseon. The National Foundation Day of Korea is the celebration of the nation; it celebrates the new birth as a cultural nation and also is a traditional holiday unique to our people. The National Foundation Day of Korea was not the 3rd day of the lunar calendar from the beginning. After the establishment of Korea in 1949, according to the Ministry of Education review, the third day of the 10th month on the lunar calendar was changed to October 3rd in response to the opinion that the transfer of the lunar and the solar calendar is impossible and the record is valuable. On the National Foundation Day of Korea, people hoist the national flag of Korea at every house. This is to celebrate the National Foundation Day of Korea, In addition, you can listen to songs about the National Foundation Day of Korea or participate in related events.
Hangeul Proclamation Day falls on Oct 9, and it is a national holiday to commemorate the creation of Hangeul(Hunminjeongeum) and its publication to the World, and to honor the excellence of the Korean alphabet. Hangeul Proclamation Day was not a national holiday from the start. In 1990, Hangeul Proclamation Day was excluded from the national holidays along with Armed Forces Day due to the complaints from businesses that there were too many national holidays. Hangeul Proclamation Day was re-designated as a national holiday through amendments to the regulations on holidays on December 24, 2012. For this reason, Hangeul Proclamation Day is drawing attention as a day to commemorate the creation and distribution of Hangeul, and to honor the excellence and meritorious service of Hangeul.
Knowing the background of the birth of The National Foundation Day of Korea and Hangeul Proclamation Day, they will not seem like a simple public holidays designated as a national holiday in our country.
