Hangul Day is a day set aside to celebrate the Korean alphabet, known as Hangul. The day is known as 한글날 (Hangulnal) in Korean, and is also known as ‘Hangul Proclamation Day’.

Hangul Day is celebrated on October 9th in South Korea and on January 15th north of the DMZ.

At first, it might seem a bit strange that people get a day off work to celebrate the alphabet (but of course any reason for a day off work is a good reason!).

The Han'gul system consists of 14 consonants and 10 vowels. The symbols for consonants are formed with curved or angled lines; the symbols for vowels are composed of vertical or horizonal straight lines with short lines on either side.

Wouldn't you think that opening the article would produce a sample for the consonants and vowels? No such luck. So many of these little articles a really very poor.

I think we should learn the alphabets and rudimentary mechanics of many languages as children.
