What is Seollal?

 

Many holidays are observed in cultures around the world. Lunar New Year is a major holiday and festival which is honored in multiple countries in Asia including China, Singapore, South Korea and Vietnam. Furthermore, in Korea, the Korean Lunar New Year is known as Seollal. This holiday is scheduled to begin each year according to the lunar calendar. This year, the first new moon begins on February 12, 2021 and ends 15 days later when the first full moon begins. Additionally, the holiday is typically celebrated for three days with traditional clothing, delicious food and fun activities.

Year of the Ox

 

One of the most incredible things about the world we live in, is having the access to learn about a vast variety of cultures. Being enlightened about how each one chooses to bring inspiration and love into the universe gives so many people the hope for new beginnings and second chances. Lunar New Year in South Korea is the time to bring in a fresh 2021 with luck and joy. Each year, a new animal is represented as a symbol. For 2021, we commemorate the year of the Ox. This animal symbolizes positive vibes, manifestation and luck. After a hard and trying 2020, this is especially needed to make the new year a phenomenal one.
