Some New Year’s Day Traditions

On New Year’s Day, we went to my in-laws, and the toddler wore his traditional Korean outfit, called hanbok.

He got the hanbok when he turned one and it was WAY too big then. Even now, more than a year later, it’s still quite big. He had fun putting it on and kept on saying how nice it was. However, he wasn’t really in the mood to wear the head piece or to pose for pictures…

And yes, the toddler is in desperate need of a haircut… The other day someone asked me how old she was…

Here hubby and the toddler are bowing to the toddler’s grandparents to wish them a happy new year, which is a tradition on New Year’s day.

And we ate Korean rice cake soup, duk gook, which is also traditional. This soup was prepared my my mother-in-law. I make my own, not so traditional version. I plan on featuring it on the blog soon…

Questions: What did you do on New Year’s Day? Does your family have any New Year’s Day traditions?

Be well,
