Red Bean Rice Porridge!

Today is the shortest day of the year, called Dongji.

To keep away all the bad ghosts tonight and for the rest of the year, it is imperative that you eat some red bean rice porridge.

If you don't, you will be more susceptible to their evil ways.

Ideally, you'd post a sign on your door which would basically say: we've eaten red bean rice porridge!  Ghosts fuck off!

I think you are supposed to write it in red, but I'm not sure.


Most people don't do the sign thing anymore, but eating the porridge is fairly common.

So go get some 팥죽 and eat it up!  Do it now!
