Jeongwoldaeboreum(정월대보름) (also called just “Daeboreum”) means the Biggest Full-Moon Day in a year. The day is decided by Lunar Calendar. Jeongwoldaeboreum is 15th of January by Lunar Calendar, and this year (2010), 28th of February is the Jeongwoldaeboreum.
Jeongwoldaeboreum is the First Moon of the year, so we wish our health, luck and love. Especially we eat so many cooked potherbs with Rice mixed with the five cereals for our health.
Firstly, like I said (even though it’s “wrote”) we eat Rice mixed with the five cereals. There are Beans, Adzuki beans(Red beans), Barley, Sorghum and Millet in Ogokbap(Rice mixed with the five cereals in Korean name). They are all good for Health! You should eat them in Korea at least once hehe.
Secondly, it’s Yakbap! Everyone, even a kid would love it! It’s made of Rice , Nuts and Taffy liquid. It’s really delicious, you can have it as a snack! It tastes sweet, and if you eat them with a cup of tea, it would be perfect! In the Yakbap, there are many nuts, also pine nuts, jujubes and so on! It makes Yakbap more delicious and sweeter.
