Holiday: Pepero11 November 2007

Pepero Day, according to wikipedia, is an observance similar to Valentine's Day or Sweetest Day. It is named after the snack Pepero and held on November 11, since the date "11/11" resembles five sticks of Pepero. The holiday is observed mostly by young people and couples, who exchange Pepero sticks, other candies, and romantic gifts. According to one story, Pepero Day was started in 1994 by students at a girls' middle school in Busan, where they exchanged Pepero sticks as gifts to wish one another to grow "as tall and slender as a Pepero"(Pepero means "thin like a stick"). However, it is more likely it was initiated by Lotte, the company which produces Pepero. So give someone you love some pepero and help keep the Korean confectionary produces in profit!!!
