[History behind the Korean duck]
A Saekdong Duck is a duck that is meant to always be around a happy family and symbolizes unity between a couple.
In the past, the Korean groom would travel to the bride’s location to hold the wedding. The first thing he did was offer a gift, which was usually a goose wrapped in a red bojagi, to his parents in law.
Geese mate for life and are known for their devotion to their mates. Thus, the goose became a symbol for the new couple’s prosperity and everlasting love throughout their marriage.
In current times, a pair of wooden geese commonly referred to as wooden ducks are used as marriage gifts or as the centerpiece for weddings.
