It’s our New Year’s holiday. The year of rabbit. Anyone? who’s in rabbit year? 🙂
We are following holidays by lunar calender, and it’s New Year’s eve according to it. New Year’s, that means family, celebration, and especially FOOD.
In Korean New Year, we are doing ceremony called “Cha Rae”, which is preparing food for ancestors. It has strict rules and ways. And… it is far to complicated to explain in here so let’s leave it for another time.
Anyway so yes we do have a lot of amount of food at home for the occasion.
Proper Cha Rae table looks like that but we are not going to have this one for private reason. However we still make food for it though, it’s a tradition. 🙂
Table full of jeon, made of mushroom, fish, pancake mainly made by green beans, fruits, meat, fish….. So many! And YUM
New Year’s Day is for family, not for going out, partying and celebrating. All families are gathering at oldest brother’s house, and having Cha Rae in the early New Year’s Day morning, and eat all of the food together.
It’s unusual long holiday – 3days, so good time to travel far, but only time to spend some time together with family as well. I’m here at home, with family and.. lots of foooood!
