Every birthday is special and well celebrated in Korea, but some milestones is greater significance than others. In modern day Korea, “Dol” is one of the best-known birthday celebrations.
Another important and celebrated day in the life of a Korean infant is “Baek-il” and is held on the 100th day after the child’s birth
100th Day Celebration (Baek-il) is a significant milestone in Korea culture. Unfortunately it was difficult to pass due to sickness and poor living conditions, so the 100th day is celebrated for having survived this difficult period.
Long ago in Korea childhood diseases were common and the survival rate was very low. The high death rate was due to a lack of medical information ,poor hygiene, Korea’s harsh winters and humid summers, and many other childhood related diseases.
To protect their children and to give the best chance of survival, parents refrained from taking the baby outdoors until the 100th day after the birth. On that 100th day, a family would traditionally pray and give food offerings to thank the Shaman spirit of childbirth for the child having survived this difficult period.
If the child was sick at this time, the family would pass the day without celebration or party as this would be considered bad luck for the infant.
At this time in Korea, the 100th day is critical day of a child’s life.
If the child was in good health, the spirit was honored with offerings of rice and sea mustard soup in gratitude for having cared for the infant and the mother, and for having helped them live through a difficult period.
If the steamed rice cakes were shared with 100 people, the infant would have a long and healthy life.
Traditionally the number 100 has a deep meaning of maturity in Korea; making it past the first 100 days was a sign that you would live to see your first birthday, and making it past your first birthday was a sign that you would make it out of infancy.
