As promised in my New year update post, I said I was going to write about how Seollal is celebrated.
새해 복 많이 받으세요 = Please receive a lot of luck or blessings in the New Year
Seollal~설날 is the most celebrated holiday in South Korea, the second being Chuseok
추석–which is the harvest festival. Seollal is not only a celebration of the coming in of a new year but an opportunity for families to come together from far and near, catch up with each other and enjoy sumptuous meals and activities. It is also a time to pay respects to ancestors and visit their grave sites.
