The variety of 2022 personally brings me again to a few of my reminiscences of the sci-fi motion pictures I could watch once I was youthful. These motion pictures usually begin with a quote, resembling ‘In 2022, folks on the earth are shifting to the Moon…’ and a narrative goes on. It sounded extremely far into the long run for a little bit woman within the 1990’s, but it’s right here with us.

This 3-day vacation, 설날 normally comes a few month later after New 12 months’s Day. One factor you need to keep in mind is that there is no such thing as a mounted date for 구정 as a result of it depends on the Lunar calendar. In different phrases, you’ll probably have 구정 on a distinct date yearly. In 2022, 구정 falls on the primary of February. 구정 연휴 (yeon-hwui: a protracted weekend or vacation) begins on 1 31 (il-wol-sam-sip-il-il: on the thirty first in January) and ends on 2 1 (il-wol-on the 2nd in February).
