Today is 식목일 (Arbor Day) in Korea

Google Calendar on my phone.

Google Calendar on my phone.

Google Calendar app on my phone shows that today is a holiday in South Korea, 식목일.
I didn’t know what kind of holiday it was so I checked Naver Dictionary, and according to it, 식목일 (pronounced: 싱모길/sing-mo-gil) is tree-planting day in Korea, or ‘Arbor Day’ in American English, celebrated on 5 April.

And then I checked weather news on Naver, and found the word 식목일 on the title so I guess it’s something worth knowing.

My old blog post: How to Find Korean TV News with Script on Naver.

식목일 = Arbor Day

식목일 = Arbor Day

So people plant trees in Korea today?

절기 청명 = Cheongmyeong, the clear and balmy season

기압골 (pronunciation: [기압꼴]) = trough of low pressure

한식 = Hansik, the 105th day after the winter solstice

OK, then. I’ve done studying Korean for today.
My husband’s relatives are coming to our house this afternoon to discuss about his brother’s wedding. 아~ 도망가고 싶다. ㅠㅠ ###
