Lunar New Year.

February 14th is Valentine’s Day for Americans, of course—we celebrated New Year’s Day (the Solar new year) back on January 1st. But for a vast section of the world, this February 14th is actually New Year’s Day… the Lunar New Year, Seol, Seol-lal, Chinese New Year, the Year of the Tiger.

To all Korean-Americans, all homeland Koreans, and all people across Asia—may you enjoy many savory, comforting foods (including tasty rice cakes!) and warm family gatherings this new year’s weekend, whether you are at home or in the midst of traveling.

Rain, unless you leave us early, you’ll still be in New York on Sunday, without family, but you are not alone. Although you don’t know us and you can’t see us, your US Clouds are with you in spirit. If you plan to eat Dduk Gook (rice cake soup), enjoy it! We have our recipes and will be eating it right along with you.

  1. i hear Atlanta has snow too, hope u ladies are warm and comfy.


  2. I wondered that myself–why G.O, Joon, Mir, and Thunder were in the pic but not SeungHo. He might have had a conflict in his schdeduling that day…

    Oh, it’s a shame the weather is getting in the way of your holiday, busybee.
