Year of the Dragon

Korean Lunar New Year, known as "Seolnal," is one of the most significant and widely celebrated holidays in South Korea. This festive occasion holds deep cultural and familial significance, bringing people together to honor traditions, share delicious meals, and pay respects to ancestors.

A time for families to gather and strengthen bonds. Many Koreans take time off from work to travel back to their hometowns, where they engage in traditional activities and spend quality time with relatives. Sebae, a traditional New Year's bowing ritual. Younger family members bow to their elders as a sign of respect and elders offer blessings by giving "sebaetdon," monetary gifts in envelopes, to the younger generation. This exchange symbolizes the passing of wisdom and prosperity from one generation to the next.
