Happy Lunar New Year!
Here in South Korea, the custom is to spend a quiet day with family, so my daughter and I followed suit. Her everyday table bouquet stood in for our holiday decoration, and another bowlful of the delicious dumplings we’ve been enjoying served as our holiday feast. After dinner, we walked to 7-11 for a carton of ice cream and that was festive too.
Just to be here in Seoul is a holiday in itself. But our simple Lunar New Year celebration is something I’ll always remember and what could be better than that?
