HAPPY PEPERO DAY! 【ペペロ・デー】

Today (11/11) is Pepero Day in Korea!

Pepero is a long, thin, chocolate covered stick biscuit snack which is very popular in Korea.
Every year on 11/11 people celebrate Pepero Day by giving Pepero to friends and family.
11/11 was chosen as Pepero Day as the date looks like 4 pepero sticks.

Since last weeks supermarkets and convenience stores have been flooded with pepero and it is no exaggeration that this day has become a national holiday close to Valentines Day (girls give boys chocolate) and White Day (boys give girls candy).
It is also common to see boxes of pepero stuck together to make a pepero sculpture being sold.

ImagePepero Day has become so popular that many outlets are participating on this day and the celebration has grown outside of the actual pepero to giving sweets in general or anything resembling pepero including major bakeries selling pepero inspired baguettes.

A big trend lately seems to be “make your own pepero” with plain bisuict sticks, decorating chocolate, candy decorations and fancy wrapping materials being sold.

Will you be giving or receiving pepero this year?

韓国では11月11日はバレンタイン・デー、ホワイト・デーに続きビッグイベントがあります。

その名も「ペペロ・デー」!

ペペロとは韓国の国民的スナック菓子、日本の某スナック菓子とソックリですが・・・ペペロです!

ペペロ・デーには家族、友人、恋人等大切な人にペペロを送ります。

近年ペペロ・デーの人気は上昇し、今ではスーパーやコンビニでは毎年大量のペペロが並んでいます。

Imageペペロの箱を繋げて作った巨大なハート等も売られています。

最近の若者の流行は手作りペペロみたいで、お店でもデコレーション用の材料やラッピングや沢山売られています。

レクシスコリアのスタッフも早速生徒から頂きました!

韓国に来た際は出会った韓国人の方々や友人等にペペロを送ってみては如何でしょうか?
