Today is 11-11! it's Pepero day!
It's a day when you give Pepero to friends/colleagues/loved ones.
The reason why 11-11 is Pepero day is quite simple... It's because all the 1s(1111) stands for pepero sticks!
Students love this day. They can exchange Peperos with friends and gift them to their teachers and even their crushes~ It's like a semi Valentines day.
It gets pretty serious in the grocery stores. The weeks before 11-11, stores will have a whole section dedicated to specially packaged Peperos in gigantic boxes, ribbons and anything to make the ordinary Pepero look out of the ordinary! Some can be small, but most of the items are massively big...
