11.11

Today is November 11th 09.  (09.11.11)

In Melbourne there is a Shrine of Remembrance to honor those who died for the country during WorldWar and there is a hall inside which contains a carved stone written “Greater Love Hath No Man”. It said that every 11th day of the 11th month at 11am, a mirror reflects the sun’s light onto the stone to spotlight the word LOVE

While in korea…Nov 11th also a special day that has a relation with LOVE~

Taken in MyeongDong – Nov 10th

That is the common view in Seoul to welcome Nov 11th.

Well, there are a lot of couple days in here like Valentine Day, White day and one of it is today (Nov 11).
Today is Pepero Day (빼빼로 데이 – PePeRo DeI). And (for couple) it’s time to exchange Pepero each other~

I think this is the day that happens only in Korea, because I’ve never found something like this in Indonesia. And probably it has some relation with advertisement thing (just a thought ^ ^).

But why it’s called Pepero Day?

Because there’s a snack called PePeRo that looks like a stick. So when you hold this snack one on each hand, it will give you number 11 (eleven). I think that’s why Nov 11th (11.11) is chosen as PePeRo Day.

So happy PePeRo day~~ ^_^
