Celebrating Family Day at The Korea Society

Today we went to celebrate Korean New Year’s Day (Solla) at The Korea Society.

Korean Family Day

Korean Family Day

All races of children, parents, and grandparents were welcome to sample traditional rice cakes (Ttok), practice the New Year's bow (Sebae), and watch a short film screening on the traditional ancestral ceremony Ch'arye, the holding of an ancestor-memorial service on festive days, with food and wine offered in sacrifice to the ancestral tablet.

Read more about our day, which was filled with traditional games and activities.
