Ahh spring. Time to cast off the darkness and grey of winter and rejoice in flowers, sunshine, and new life.
In Korea, spring means cherry blossoms. These gorgeous pink blooms cover the country, starting from the end of March and into April. Flower festivals take over the country, and the lantern parade for Buddha’s Birthday is a yearly spring highlight celebrated by hundreds of thousands of people.
