Korean New Year: Take #1

 

This Lunar New Year, we are highlighting several reflections and celebrations of Korean New Year from the point of view of several people or families with varying levels of Korean heritage and connections.  Many people know of Lunar New Year only as Chinese New Year, and there is that connection (not the least of which is because it’s based on the Chinese Lunar Calendar), but there are also many other varied and rich traditions for Lunar New Year.
