Chuseok 2017

Earlier in this blog I have written about Korea’s Chuseok festival that takes place annually at harvest time and includes the giving of gifts that to English eyes might look rather unusual (presentation packs of Spam for example).

A friend has forwarded me this link to a Korea Times news article describing how the current situation across the border has made survival kits a popular gift this year.  A sign of the times.

If it were me, I might be tempted to put a can of Spam in the bag to create the arguably ultimate survival kit.
