Life in the ROK

West goes East: The lives and adventures of a Californian couple living in Seoul

Thursday, March 26, 2009

A Korean coworker of Jay's kindly bought Max this traditional 1st birthday costume. The 1st birthday in Korean culture is a very big deal. The parents are supposed to throw a big party and invite all of their friends, family and coworkers to a party and ceremony in honor of the 1 year old. Instead we are leaving on a vacation to Vietnam on Saturday and will have a birthday BBQ for Max when we return. But we couldn't let his birthday go by without a celebration and since we had such a fabulous costume....
with a matching tote!
Max was a pretty good sport about all of it, although as you can see he was not really convinced that there was much fun to be had in his costume.
