Peppero Day 2013

November 11th is a special day in Korea. The numbers 11/11 remind Koreans of the long cookie snacks called pepero. This isn’t a tradition that dates back hundreds of years though. It actually began sometime in the 80’s or 90’s. I received my pepero from a student and it made my day.
