Sure, I’m in Kuwait now, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still keep track if some of my favourite holidays from countries where I’ve previously lived. Today, 11.11, is Pepero Day in South Korea. It’s basically like Valentine’s Day, except it’s in November and people just give Pepero to their loved ones (and their teachers– always remember Pepero for the teacher!). Many people say, and I kind if believe it, that Pepero Day was invented because November 11th, when written as 11.11, looks like a bunch of Pepero sticks. Regardless whether that’s true, I’m willing to believe any explanation that justifies the creation of a holiday the entire point if which is to give chocolate-dipped cookie sticks to all of your loved ones (and your teachers).
