Today is public holiday in Korea on celebration of Liberation Day or what they called Gwangbokjeol which means “restoration of light”. It commemorates the victory of Korea from Imperial Japan in 1945. In 1948 on the same day the government of the Republic of Korea was created with their first President Syngman Rhee and Gwangbokjeol was officially designated a public holiday on October 1, 1949.

It is raining today but if you walk outside you can see Korean flags raised in the street, we went shopping a while ago for fruits and vegetable we thought we are going to spend more today but luckily we didn’t because we had a nice deal on the fruits, they are on sale especially the grapes and apples so we only pay half of what we expected.
