During a Korean child’s first birthday, a bunch of assorted items are laid out on a table infront of a child, things like string, pencils, rice, and etc. The child’s future is determined by the first couple of objects he or she grabs. Curious, I asked my mum what item I grabbed during this event. She told me that I grabbed money. I forgot to ask her what I grabbed next.
If a child picks money, it means that he or she will be rich. I wonder when this future kicks in for me.
Update: Asked my mum again for the 2nd item. It was string, which represents long life. So in the end, I don’t think I’ll be seeing whether my fortunes will come true for a long time. Hopefully not too long for the money part. 😉
