Pepero Day

I just learned about this holiday last night when a Korean friend was explaining the mobs of people around a pepero stand in Gangnam. This is a holiday named after the chocolate-covered snack "Pepero" and is similar to Valentine's day. It's celebrated on 11/11 because the date looks like 4 sticks of pepero. I bought a box of pepero and we're having a party in my kindergarten class after lunch today-- we can always use another reason to celebrate!
