mommy and me#4 chinese new year

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
Hosted by Krystyn at Really, Are You Serious?

Chinese new year is one of the biggest holiday in Korea.

My Korean family is not that big and we don’t have visitors in this kind of gathering but we don’t let the kids forget their tradition and still we taught them how to follow and learned it from us to continue for the future.
Korean New Year is called “Sol-nal” which means Lunar new year and also known as “Gujeong”, which means litterally “Old New Year ’s Day”. Koreans are family-oriented people and this holiday is all about the family.
On the morning of Sol-nal, everyone dresses up in their best Korean traditional clothes “Hanbok” 
Kids are practicing the bows to respect the olds. And received a new years money from the grand parents
This special holiday, Korean New Year, is filled with tasteful traditional New Year’s food, socializing with all the family members, playing games, and having good laughs. There’s nothing better than this.
