Korean New Year (설날 – Seollal) is the first day of the Korean lunar calendar. It is one of the most significant traditional Korean holidays. Korean New Year is typically a family holiday. The three-day holiday is used by many to return to their hometowns to visit their parents and other relatives, where they perform an ancestral ritual called charye.
Many Koreans dress up in colorful traditional Korean clothing, hanbok. But nowadays, small families tend to become less formal and wear other formal clothing instead of hanbok. 새해 복 많이 받으세요 (Saehae bok mani badeuseyo). 즐거운 설날 보내세요 – jeulgeoun seollal bonaeseyo 🙂
