ancestor,Hanbok,Sebae - korea lunar new year #2

Korean often retrun to their ancestral hometown for the new year.
Given Korea's post-war urbanization, this translates into a phenomenon
known as the Great Migration, in which korea's major cities empty out
and rural communities seem to double in population.
The great migration is also accomplished by legendary traffic congestion
on national highways.
Many Korean families perform an ancestral rite ceremony, or Charye
ceremony involves bowing before a shrine, upon which a good deal of
sacrificial food is placed. the food  which is consumed by the family afterward,
requires much preparation, traditionally performed by a family's womenfolk.
another custom is the Sebae.
younger family members perform a deep bow to their elders (parents, grandfather etc)
and wish them a happy new year; parents reward this with a small gift, usually money
Koreans often mark the new year with a set of new korean clothing or hanbok - the new
year's hanbok is called Seobim.
Traditional games are played, too, particularly the board game of Yutnori.
