I have had to explain this to several of my friends here. Apparently, they don’t have family reunions in Korea.

As you know, the United States is much bigger than Korea. Also, families are usually bigger in America than Korea. It is also more common for people to move away from their families for school or work. Since families are bigger and family members often live far away from each other, they can not always meet together during the holidays. As a result, many families often have a family reunion.

A family reunion is a big party for all of the family to meet. Family reunions are usually held in the summer. The family will usually rent a park pavilion for the day. All of the family members meet to eat (usually a barbecue or a potluck), talk, and play games.
