The "DOL" First Birthday Celebration
The "DOL" (or "doljanchi") is a widely celebrated Korean tradition that celebrates the 1st birthday of a baby. The birthday ceremony essentially blesses the child with a prosperous future and longevity. Historically in Korea, many children died before their 1st birthday and so it was a very important milestone for both the baby and family when the child reached 12 months of age.
Long ago, the whole village would celebrate a baby's first birthday, while sharing lots of food and giving many blessings to the child.Typically in every dol celebration, the baby is dressed in a Korean traditional hanbok and will perform a custom called the "doljabi," where the baby will pick an object from an assortment, which many believed would foretell the child's future. In every dol, there is also the grand table, where food is stacked high to symbolize a life of prosperity for the baby.
