We have full spoilers for the January 2020 Korean Snack Box! If you order between January 1-31 you will get this box.
The theme this month is New Year 2020!
Here in Korea the winter weather is still freezing cold but there is reason to celebrate, it is New year! And we will say goodbye to 2019 and welcome 2020!
In Korean the commonly used Happy New Year greeting is 새해복 많이 받으세요 (sae-hae-bok man-i bad-eu-se-yo) and means “I hope you receive lots of luck in the new year” 🤗
Did you know that in Korea we not only celebrate one New Year, we celebrate two New Years! While we also celebrate Sinjeong/신정 the “Solar New Year” that is mostly celebrated around the world, we are mostly focused on 설날/Seollal the “Lunar New Year”. Seollal occurs on the second new moon after midwinter and marks the first day of the new year on the Lunar calendar. Seollal is maybe the most important holiday in Korea so we are filled with joy that we get to celebrate Seollal with you!
During Seollal we meet family and relatives and eat rice cake in hope for longevity and good health. During Seollal it is also common to dress in the traditional Korean clothing 한복/Hanbok. You probably seen and know about Hanboks but did you know that a special attribute of the Hanboks is that they do not have any pockets? ^^ Instead we carry a Bokjumeoni silk bag like the once you get in every Korean Snack Box, and this month you will get a beautiful orange Bokjumeoni that you can use in your daily life or as a decoration!
