Christmas Words in Korean Vocabulary

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. We thought this would be the perfect time to add some vocabulary (we’ve never done a post on Christmas).

Although Christmas is big in Western countries, it’s not as big here in Korea. Although everyone pretty much gets the holiday off from work and school, a big deal is not made of giving presents, decorating the house, or going out and enjoying a Christmas market. Kind of sucks for me as I always miss the Christmas atmosphere, so next year we can hopefully take a trip back home for Christmas.

One of the biggest things I miss is a good cup of egg nog. Seeing as it’s not sold anywhere in Korea, I will be making my own for the second year in a row. hopefully it turns out as good as last years.
