Week of January 17-24

WEEKLY Seh Heh Bok Mahn ee Bahd Euh Sae Yo Happy New Year to all our Korean employees The Lunar New Year arrives this coming weekend, turning Korean highways into gigantic parking lots as millions of people return to their ancestral homes to pay homage to their Families. One of Korea’s biggest holidays of the year, the actual Lunar period is Sunday through next Tuesday (Jan 22-24 with New Year’s Day Jan 23). But the traffic is expected to pick up Friday and continue through next Wednesday or beyond. Like the Chinese, the Koreans observe the Lunar Calendar and the 12 animals of the Lunar Zodiac. This upcoming year will be the Year of the Dragon. Gifts will be exchanged, people will visit the graves of their ancestors and everyone will become another year older. See the January Happenings for some interesting information about the Lunar New Year.
