Celebrating your birthday, actually the day of your start is comparatively new in Korea. So after I point out birthdays on this article I’ll be referring to celebrating the day of your start. But Korea does have a standard method of celebrating getting older. Let’s have a look at that now.

Unique age counting

In Korea we depend our age otherwise. The day when a child is born, they're mechanically one 12 months outdated. And yearly on the 1st of January EVERYONE will get one 12 months older. This is an outdated Chinese custom that Korea makes use of.

So, while you celebrate the day of your start in Korea you don’t get a 12 months older. That occurs on January 1st.


Duk gook Korean rice cake soup

On the morning of the 1st of January we eat 떡국 [duk-kook] (rice cake soup) to celebrate getting one 12 months older. 떡국 has sliced rice cake, egg, and meat boiled in a bone broth.  And we are saying:

새해 복 많이 받으세요.

[sae-hae-bok ma-ni ba-duh-sae-yo]

(I want so that you can have a variety of luck within the new 12 months.)

On our precise birthday, the day of our start not January 1st, we're served 미역국 [mi-yuk-gook] (seaweed soup) historically cooked by our mother, a bowl of rice, and a few facet dishes. 미역국 has chopped up seaweed, a meat of selection (generally beef), and just a little little bit of sesame oil.<!-- -->

The candy potato desserts are widespread amongst older individuals.

Celebrations and presents

It is widespread to celebrate birthdays at dwelling with household as an alternative of getting an enormous occasion. We should not have theme events for teenagers. When youngsters are little (three – 9 years outdated) mother and father ship little goodie baggage to highschool for his or her classmates. We will collect round a cake after dinner and blow out the candles after making a want and identical to western type birthdays, we don’t say what our want is.

The candles must be the appropriate numbers for his or her age. Longer candles imply the primary digit variety of the age, and shorter candles imply the final digit variety of the age. So, if the individual is 38 years outdated, we'll put three lengthy candles and eight brief candles on the cake.

After we change into an grownup, once we can legally drink alcohol, we regularly have a celebration with pals in a bar. People deliver presents and a cake, and the birthday individual picks up the tab for everybody.

Also, birthday playing cards are usually not typically given.

Special birthday years

There are 2 years that individuals celebrate their birthdays in an enormous method. When individuals flip 60, and after they flip 70.

To celebrate their longevity, their youngsters both put together an enormous festive occasion or a visit abroad. In the previous, their kids would lease a spot to have everybody over from their small city together with their household and pals. For meals they might have rice desserts, fruit, and a pig that they kill.

In the previous, we assist one another in the course of the harvest time or any time we want, and we name it 상부상조 [sang bu-sang-jo] which implies we assist one another with the intention of being paid again. Because of this we attempt to match the value of the current once we purchase. For instance, if individual A purchased me a gift that prices about $30, on individual A’s birthday I'll purchase one thing that prices about $30. As you become old, as an alternative of shopping for a gift it's acceptable to offer money as a gift. Elders choose to get money.

Also, youthful generations typically order a powerful drink or make their very own drink that's blended with no matter they'll discover on the desk like salt, ketchup, pepper, or different issues that aren't essentially meals. Socks will be dipped, or the drink will be poured in a shoe. This is just not essentially a practice, however some youthful Koreans do it for enjoyable.

People drink Soju in a shot or combine it with beer as a 폭탄주 [pok-tan-ju] (bomb drink).

Makoli Korean rice wine

막걸리 is milky and has sweeter and easy style to it. Sticky rice wine is the preferred one. Traditionally it's served in an enormous bowl and also you scoop it out with a ladle that's made from a gourd.

These are three quite common ingesting video games we play however there are much more ingesting video games than those beneath.

1. 세종대왕 [Sae-jong dae-wang] (King Sejong)

We don’t even have Korean phrases to substitute these phrases, so it may be very difficult. Whoever speaks English phrases has to drink.
