People still may not all agree about what to call it, like I said back in Is it Hangul? or Hangeul? or Han'gŭl? or what?

But today is the day we can remember the actions of King Sejong the Great, the creator of Hangeul (maybe we should just say 한글 and not worry about imperfect transliteration systems).
