It’s Pepero Day in Korea!  An act of marketing genius of a legitimate event (you make the call), Pepero day has become similar to Valentine’s Day in Korea, but held on November 11.  The orginal idea behind the day was to exchange Peperos with each other in the hope of becoming taller and thinner.  It later somehow morphed into what it is now – a day to show affection to friends and loved-ones.

On 11th of November, Lexis students are going to try their hands at making Pepero!

Don’t miss the chance to get your own hand-made pepero 😀

ペペロデーとは老若男女関係なく、

友情、愛情、感謝の気持ちをこめてプレゼントし合う日です。

韓国では1994年、釜山に住むある女子高生が友達同士で

「背が高くて、スラっとした美人になろう!」と

ペペロを贈りあったのがきっかけだそうです。

皆さんもペペロ(ポッキー)を仲良しのお友達やお世話になっている先生、

家族や大切な方へソンムル(プレゼント)してみてはいかがでしょうか?^^
