My Favorite Holiday is Today

October 9 is Hangul Nal, which is celebrated in Korea. Hangul Nal means "alphabet day", and is an annual celebration of the invention of Hangul, the Korean alphabet, by King Sejong in the mid-13th century.

Unlike many other east Asian languages such as Chinese, which are ideographic, the Korean alphabet, like English, is orthographic. That is, the characters specify how the word is to be pronounced. King Sejong created the alphabet in order to increase literacy among the commonoers. As a result, Korea has one of the highest literacy rates in the world today. Here's a blog entry that gives a good brief background of the language: http://blogs.transparent.com/korean/hangul-day

It is arguably the most logical alphabet ever designed. People can learn it with a couple of days of study. I used to travel to Korea on business and I can state from experience that this is true. Of course, being able to read it and being able to understand what I was reading are two entirely different skills. But I was so impressed by the history of the language and how logically the alphabet was constructed that Hangul Nal remains one of my favorite holidays even though I haven't visited Korea in fifteen years.
