Korean New Year… “SEOLLAL” aka 'Lunar New Year'

 “Seollal” known as Lunar New Year in Australia is one of the most celebrated national holidays in Korea along with Chuseok.

In this sense, Korean people are quite offended with the term “Chinese New Year” widely used in Australia.

Rather, they are of a strong view that Lunar New Year is the most proper description of the occasion as it has been celebrated by the both countries including some other Asian countries.

In this sense, the Korean communities in Australia have been campaigning for the proper designation of the terms.
