Thanks to Choo-seok holidays, I could take 8 days off. what is called, last week was golden holidays to me. I went to my hometown, Gunwi county to see my parents and to prepare a worship for my ancestors from Daegu city. so did my first elder brother's family from Seoul, my younger brother's family from Gyeung-joo city and my second elder brother from Ma-san city.
Thanks to this holidays, my families had a good and long time all together in my parents house in Gun-wi county, my brothers' birthplace and hometown. on Choo-seok day, we worshiped our ancestors and prayed for good fortunes and help. most of all, in the middle of Choo-seok holiday, my first elder brother's second daughter's one-year party was held at korean restaurant in Gunwi county. we, all families celebrate the first birthday of her life. It was meaningful time to think of importance of MY family.
In Choo-seok holidays, I had many conversations with my brothers, had three time of good breakfast, lunch and dinner with my all families, we saw the full moon in the sky and talked to one another with drinking rice wine in the old private school neighboring my
parents house and I spent one day on playing tennis with my friends at a tennis court in my hometown.
we, brothers visited our ancestors' tombs in the bush to cut weeds covered tombs. there are 12 tombs to manage by us. It was very hard stuff, although a weed cutting machine, portable mower was used. It take one and a half hour to get far tombs by foot on the narrow path in the bush and take 30 minutes to get near toms by foot from my parents house. To me, "the way my ancestors' tomb became a good hiking route with my father and my brothers."
All korean people do not like my family. My family still have traditional custom to worship our ancestors and pray to our ancestors for mercy and protection from evils.
To combat the evil that is paramount in the world......
