As I previously mentioned... I will double up on random days to make up for lost time in my thankfulness.
Today is not only Veteran's Day, but it is also Pepero Day in Korea and other parts of Asia. I heard about such a day from several Korean and Chinese visiting scholars in Conversation Circle. Pepero day is like Valentine's Day but for single people. Its on 11/11 each year...get it? one one one one...singles day. See what they did there? They call it Pepero Day because the Pepero treats, pretzel-like sticks dipped in chocolate also look like the number one or are singular sticks that you eat. I am thankful for other cultures and the fun perspectives they offer.
Happy Veteran's/ Pepero Day!
|One would think it would be very easy for me to find Pepero sticks since I live in Ktown, but I ended up grabbing Pocky Sticks at Daiso Japan to celebrate singles day.|
