Have you been seeing an abundance of nuts at your local stores and markets this week? That's because today is 대보름, or the first full moon of the lunar new year which is always January 15th of the Lunar calendar. You didn't know? Well, it's not a big deal. In the city, people may only eat some nuts to celebrate. Eating nuts on Daeboreum will keep you healthy in the new year.
I found some photos of some fire celebrations in Gyongju that took place last year from this blog . You can also read about some of the other traditional foods eaten on Daeboreum from this decent wikipedia page.
So, make sure you eat some nuts today!
