Despite a significant and active Christian population, much of the celebrating on Christmas in South Korea is secular. This disparity is because the commercial Christmas culture arrived and settled in Korea well before Christianity. While Christian Koreans attend mass or church services on Christmas Day, much of the nation views the day as an opportunity for romance. This is because South Korea already celebrates two family holidays - Chuseok, dubbed the "Korean Thanksgiving", on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, and Seollal, the Korean New Year, which is usually on the second new moon after the winter solstice. Therefore, Christmas more closely resembles Valentine’s Day. worldholidaytraditions.com
