Holidays & Observances in South Korea
South Korea is a peninsula country in Southeast Asia. Much of its culture is derived from nearby China and Japan due to years of occupation by both. Religion has lost much of its popularity in modern times with about half of the population claiming no religion. The remainder of the people mostly practice either Christianity or Buddhism. The holidays for both of those religions are important as even some of the non-religious people may choose to continue celebrating religious holiday traditions.
