I know it’s a day late, but I still thought I’d include some holiday themed vocabulary for the celebratory 4th of July weekend here in the States.
Last night my family and I attended a party at a friend’s house, where I set off a couple of fireworks for the first time. I’m not talking lame little sparklers here either. I was setting off the big, dangerous, shoot-up-and-explode-in-the-air kind. It was terrifying, but also exhilarating.
With that in mind, here are my words of the day:
명절 – national holiday
명절을 쇠다 – to observe/celebrate a holiday
폭죽 – fireworks/firecrackers
폭죽을 터뜨리다 – to set off fireworks
미국 국기 – American flag
