Just a reminder that Seolnal (설날), also known as Lunar New Year, is early this year. It’s Monday, Jan. 23–one week from today. Again this year our family won’t get to have a whole day celebration since the husband’s magazine is on deadline that day and our exchange will be in school.
But we will have tteokguk (떡국), the traditional rice cake soup eaten on this holiday that allows you to turn a year older; we’ll play yut nori; and the kids will do sebae and receive sebae ton. All of these traditions have been written about on this belong in previous years and can be found by looking through the Holidays category.
This year on Seolnal we’ll also do a presentation on Korea for our exchange student’s school class. I’ll be posting more about this presentation in the coming week to you some ideas about things to do during school presentations.
Until then, 새해 복 많이 받으세요! We do hope you all receive many new year’s blessings.
