Calvin had his photo taken for his 100th-day celebration. Traditionally, in the Korean culture, a baby is kept at home as they are thought to be the most susceptible to sickness during that time. So, they are thrown a 100th-day party to celebrate their life and to introduce them to family and friends for the first time.
For the party the child is dressed in traditional Korean clothes. A male child wears the traditional hood worn by unmarried youths (which can be seen above). The child is seated before a table of various foods and objects such as thread, books, notebooks, brushes, ink and money which have all been given to the family by friends and relatives. The child is urged to pick up an object from the table, as it is believed the one selected first will foretell the child's future. If the child picks up a writing brush or book, for example, he is destined to be a scholar. If he picks up money or rice, he will be wealthy; cakes or other food, a government official; a sword or bow, a military commander. If the child picks up the thread, it is believed he will live a long life.
It's always interesting to see what the child will pick and whether or not it falls in line with what their parents would have chosen for them! Cal chose a golf ball first and then a computer mouse which might represent an athlete and a computer whiz for those of you that were curious.
