Seol-nal Extravaganza

Katie in Korea

Seol-nal, or Lunar New Year, is actually on the 19th, but the school held its Seol-nal event last Thursday because we actually get the holiday off (SHOCKING NEWS, I KNOW!) I spent the day shepherding around small children while wearing a traditional han-bok, which is not the ideal outfit for any physical activity. So it was an interesting day. As usual, I understood about 20% of what was going on, but I still had a lot of fun.

The han-bok I wore was provided by the school, and it was lovely. I haven’t worn that much pink at one time since I was four and dressing up as a princess. So yes, I felt like a princess. A pretty, pretty princess, dammit.


One of the best things about my school is the diversity. Many of the Indian kids came to school in traditional shalwars.
