Daeboreum - First Full Moon Festival

When myself, David, Shae, Adam and Suzi where on our way to Taekwondo last night we came across a 'First Full Moon festival happening in Changnyeong. We decided not go to Taekwondo practice and attend this instead! It was nice. We watched some Korean traditional dancing, we danced around a bonfire with the locals and drank some makoeli. (rice wine) Things we will do to get out of exercising! We did attend the final twenty minutes of our class so we weren't that lazy! 
*Daeboreum (literally 'Great Full Moon') is a Korean holiday that celebrates the first full moon of the year of the lunar Lorean calender. It is said that the first person to see the full moon rise will have good luck all year or a wish will be granted.
