Seollal or Korean New Year

Tonight is New Year here  in Korea or what they called Seollal it is the first day of the lunar calendar that’s why it is also called Lunar New Year. It is the most important of the traditional Korean holidays. It consists of a period of celebrations, starting on New Year’s Day, it is also a three days holiday.

The street is empty and you can see all the cars park everywhere. Most people are just at home with their families and love ones, most of the stores are also closed early. My husband and I celebrated it very simple we just went to Popeye’s to order a box of chicken and buy baked good afterwards.
