In Korean culture, it is customary to celebrate the 100th day of life for a new baby. At 100 days, it was thought that the child is not as fragile and will likely live. Also, the mother has now typically regained their health and strength after the birth. Both of which are wonderful reasons to celebrate! At the 100 Day Celebrations, there is a table upon which the baby sits, surrounded by different objects, each with a unique meaning. The baby will reach for an item which has a great meaning about the person they will become. I was so excited to be a part of this family’s celebration for Lilly’s First 100 Days.
The party was wonderful but my favorite moment was catching Grandma cradling Lilly for a quick nap.
