The day started at 8 am with ddeok mandu guk and side dishes, makgeoli, bowing completely to the floor three times twice in a row, and holding a baby. It’s ending quietly with a book.
Interestingly, I found this January 10, 1972 Time article featuring President Richard M. Nixon and the significance of the Year of the Rat,
"…a time of timidity and meanness."
May we all find our fortune somehow this trying year!
