Hanboks

American's have Thanksgiving where we celebrate our country and all that we have to be thankful for.

Korean's have Thanksgiving as well, but they celebrate their ancestors and heritage. It's called Chusok. It's very common to dress up in traditional clothing, called hanboks, and get together with family.

Owen insisted in all his 2-year-oldness that he wanted a pink hanbok. This is actually not as weird as it may sound to you. Pink was worn by men and women, boys and girls, with no stigma attached. It actually made hand-me-downs quite nice.

We were given two hanboks for the kids. Owen got his wish! They felt so proper and pretty. Well, Owen felt handsome. Even in pink, ok?
