Happy Dol sweet Cali 🙂
In Korea the first birthday of a child is a very significant event. It’s called “dol janchi” or in Hangeul: 돌잔치. The head table is the main attraction with dol towers, rice cakes (duk) and fruit. The birthday baby will be dressed in a hanbok, a traditional Korean outfit. The highlight of the festivities occurs when it’s time for the doljabi (돌잡이) ritual. This is the time when various items are placed in front of the child and guest watch to see what the child picks up first. It is believed that whatever he chooses will determine his future.
I just LOVE Cali’s sweet smile 🙂
This party was perfect in every way.
