So Monday is Pepero day. Pepero day is a genius fake holiday that was created by a cookie company. Pepero looks like the Japanese cookie Pocky and 2 of them together look like the number 11 so 11/11 is Pepero day. The stores are filled with displays and I see people with big bags of them. Last week I was at a stationary shop and saw that they sell all the bits and pieces so you can make your own style Pepero to give to your friends and loved ones. I picked up a few packets of cookies and some melting chocolate and I am going to make some for the teachers in the English office. Yes, it is totally commercial and mostly celebrated by middle schoolers, but I love a good kitchen craft!
