Merry Christmas! Or should I say “Jeulgaeun krismas doeseyo  즐거운 크리스마스 되세요”

I am in South Korea!

 

 

There are a lot of lights and decorations everywhere, especially in the shops.

Children are given presents  by Santa Kullosu (산타 클로스) on Christmas Eve.  Like in Scotland, children hang stockings up on Christmas Eve for Santa Kullosu, but unlike in Scotland, he can wear blue!

 

 

In Scotland, a Christmas cake is often a fruit cake.  In South Korea it is a sponge cake filled with cream.  It is very yummy.  Sometimes they have ice cream cake as well!

Christmas in Korea is slightly different, but I recognise a lot of it too.  I like the blue Santa Claus, he matches my jumper!
