Happy New Year - Korean Traditions - Greeting Card
New Year is a big holiday in Korean culture! I wanted to share some of my favorite traditions through this card:
- Bokjumoni (money pouch heehee): Children will bow to their elders as a sign of respect and to wish them a happy new year. In return, they receive some $$$, a way of elders also wishing them a happy new year and to express support and love.
- Yutnori: This is a game that we play together as a family! It's a traditional Korean game involving four sticks that have different point values.
- Sikhae (Rice Punch): A sweet, rice drink with pine nuts and rice grains in it - SO GOOD.
- Rice Cake Soup: In the mornings, families will gather and eat rice cake soup together
- Oranges: A sign/symbol of good luck and prosperity for the new year!
- Yakhwa (Korean honey sugar cookie): The best dessert post-rice cake soup! Basically a deep fried cookie YUM.
All greeting cards are printed on 325 gsm card stock. Images are adjusted so colors may vary. All cutting, scoring, and folding is done by hand, therefore, there may be slight variances with the product image. Each greeting card has the Milky & Co. Studios logo, handle + artist initials on the back of the card. The inside of the card is blank.
All cards come with a A2 kraft envelope and packaged in recyclable cellophane packaging bags.
