Guest Post: A Holiday Photo Essay of Christmas in Seoul

This post showcases the holidays in Seoul and was created by Chris Backe. Chris is one of the most well-known bloggers in Korea. Check out his website at http://www.chrisinsouthkorea.com

Pronounce it 'low-tay'. A number of areas around Seoul get gussied up for the holidays, and the downtown area is one of the best. Christmas in Seoul has plenty of the commercial messages, along with a few of the religious messages. This is a country with about 25% Christians, so it's present, but not overbearing. You're more likely to see Santa with his reindeer than crosses.



Seen outside the Lotte Duty Free Store in downtown Seoul - take a look inside for thousands of tiny lights.


Lotte Young Plaza all dressed up for the holidays.


Don't ask me why, but the fountain just looks better in black-and-white.


A very dolled-up reindeer - something tells me that's not Rudolph. While the Myeong-dong area has plenty of pretty lights, they're scattered around downtown Seoul as well. The City Hall Plaza has a several-story tall Christmas tree and a few other things to keep the holiday spirit alive.

One of the wonders brought by the Christmas season is that it can turn any busy street into a relaxing and high spirited sight. This is why I love the holidays.

This photo essay conveys how meaningful and fun it is to celebrate the holidays in Seoul, even though majority of the citizens are non-Catholics.
