This year Korean New Year was on the 19th of February. It is mostly on the same day, as Chinese New Year.
On Korean New Year, Korean people eat special food. Some special food is Tteokguk and jeon. Jeon has many different kinds my favourite jeon is Kim Chi jeon.
On Korean New Year children play special games and wear their hanbok. Some special games are flying kites, tuho and yunnori. Hanbok is Korean special clothes. On New Year adults give money to children, the children do sebeh to adults. This is when the children kneel on the ground and bow.
Korean New Year is still important for the Korean people because at New Year people get one year older. I like Korean New Year because my dad gives me a present.
English new year is first of January, but Korean new year is not the same. It is the first day of the lunar calendar.
On Korean New Year the Korean people eat tteokguk. Tteokguk is rice cake soup and Korean people eat it for good luck. The white rice cake means pure and clean. Korean people also eat jeon on Korean New Year. Jeon is like the pancake. There is kimchi or vegetables inside the jeon.
On Korean New Year, children wear hanbok and eat tteokguk or jeon. The children do special games like yunnori, tuho and flying kites. The children do sebeh for their parents or grandparents. Then the adults give money to the children. If the children don't do that, there is no money.
On Korean New Year, children and adults get one year older. Korean New Year is the same time as Chinese New Year. On Korean New Year all Korean people have 3 days holiday, New Years Eve, and the first and second day of New Year. Korean people still celebrate new year and I like Korean new year because it has 3 holidays!
