the folding screen for worship.
As you know, From Oct. 2nd, 2009 to Oct. 4th, 2009 was Korean traditional holiday(Choo-soek, Aug.15. on lunar month, the full moon's day). I worshiped my ancestors with my all family. On Choo-soek day, Confucian(about a quarter of national total population) set a table for their ancestors in the morning, Choo-soek. and pray for thier ancestors and thanks for good harvest this year.
This Choo-soek, My elder brother's wife couldn't come to My father's house, because she gave a birth to her second daughter on Sep. 17th. she still in rest in hospital with her second daughter. but My first elder brother and his first daughter came to my father's house to worship my family ancestors by his car from Seoul Choo-seok two days earlier. My younger brother's family also came to my father's house Choo-soek one day earlier. My younger brother's wife and My brothers cooked and set a table for our ancestors all together. My father and My mother controled all procedure of worship for our ancestors god. My second brother also come to my father's house Choo-soek three days earlier by his car from Masan city. my second brother changed his school(the middle school in the

During Choo-soek, we, my families had meals, drank soft liquor and rice wine all together except for children, set a table for our ancestors, prayed for our ancestors thanks for this happy life and most of all, protecting my families from evil ones in this world.
On Oct. 4th, I trekked my hometown hills around with my second brother. My hometown is surrounded with many hills. I would like to watch down my hometown landscape on the highest hill in my hometown. I think My hometown is a good place to live with peace under heaven. when I will be old man and someday, I will must be back to my hometown and I will write my stories and my life. probably, someday will be 2020.
