Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Photographer's caption reads, "At the Korean Cultural Center a Moon Festival, Daeboreum, was held February 6, 2001 in observance of --Seol-- the first full moon of the Korean New Year, a special day for family gatherings. Following a feast of traditional holiday food, people gathered in a large open area. Most sat on the carpet while socializing, nibbling on nuts, and sipping tea, coffee, and soda. Children and adults formed teams to play the traditional new year's game of yut. Played with four markers around the game board according to the outcome of the stick toss. The object, of course, is to skillfully reach home first."
