Korean tradition makes a big deal out of the first birthday (or dohl) as its original intent was to celebrate an infant's survival back in the time of high mortality rates. Over the years, especially with the rise of the internet and photography blogs, people have been one-upping each other to put together an even bigger, highly styled, more whimsical bash. I won't even try to keep up given my already crazy life, so I'm trying to keep things simple and easy.
So for those curious to know what a dohl celebration is like, I thought pictures could explain this better than any words can :)
