A Korean New Year’s Celebration

New year’s day is always a big celebration for my family here in Korea. I had a chance to meet with my relatives for some good traditional food and customs. My second cousins were dressed in their hanboks (traditional Korean outfits) in order to do the saebae (bowing to elders for money). This happened after a good Korean meal in the morning complete with dduk gook and all the side dishes! Even though we are adults now, we still bow to our elders (aunts & uncles), and they gave us some money as well! 🙂
