새해복많이받으세요!! ^^*~

So the Lunar New year was yesterday...a very long, pleasing, and nostalgic day ^^*!~

So a belated: 새해복많이받으세요!! ^^*~
     Tradition holds that you go to your elder's house (oldest in the family) and in this case I went to my 할아버지 and my 할머니 home*!~ It is a day of respecting your elders and ancestors and...just a very family oriented day*!~
     The day before the actual lunar year you spend the day preparing food and 반찬 This food will be presented to your ancestors and then eaten by you..ㅎㅎㅎ
     The Lunar new year involves a lto of eating, traditional games, and respecting those wonderful elders of yours...and you say "새해복많이받으세요." while bowing, hold out your hands and get money. But you only get money from thos eolder than you...aiii New year consisted of kicking it with family, making more 만두 then imagined, eating and Jack Black.
When I got there..there were lots of Vegan Eats...whoa...I never eat this much...holidays, you kill me
