Korea has a real knack and penchant for festivals, which is something I've really come to love about living in this country. It seems like nearly every weekend there's something going on, and I've tried my hardest to check out as much as I can. But as November rolls back around, the Cheonggyecheon stream in Seoul lights up with fancy lanterns, signaling the start of one of my favorite festivals in Korea.

It was Hangeul Day recently! So, we teachers were awarded the best surprise gift; a mid-week Wednesday day off. A day trip was quickly thrown together and we happened to notice that a Lantern Festival was happening not too far from Busan, in Jinju.
