    In Korea, the traditional pastime during the holidays are the Kite flying, Jagi kicking, GangGangSulae and Wrestling.
    I wonder what other countries do during the holidays.

    Kite flying was first introduced by the Greek Akitas. It was initially used for military purpose, but later changed in to recreation purpose.

    In Korea, On January 15th in the lunar calendar, people fly kites to let go bad things. People make their own kites and you can see a variety of kites flying in the sky
