Folk Festival -
Saturday February 8, 2020

Secular holiday : Actually called Jongwol Daeborum, it has been observed for over 1,000 years. Jongwol Daeborum is the first full moon of the new lunar year. In the past, it was thought that because the moon was full, it was a day for driving away misfortune and evil. Thus, the foods eaten and the games played on this traditional holiday have had a hidden purpose of expelling misfortune and evil.
