Hello friends! just here to wish every one a happy pepero day..oh, you don't know of this sweet celebration? let me share with you Pepero day here in Korea!
an observance in South Korea similar to Valentine's Day, but held on November 11. Its pretty a huge deal, for days I've been seeing pepero being sold everywhere, gift baskets, special edition pepero, just anything you can find in valentines day but in a pepero way.
The original purpose of the Pepero Day was to exchange peperos with each other in hopes of becoming taller and thinner.
The current purpose is to exchange peperos to show affection for friends and loved-ones.
