So check this one out… a few years ago, a giant Korean company called Lotte started a special, magical day for all Koreans – Pepero Day. A pepero is a little wafer stick wrapped in chocolate (see picture). Because two of these standing beside each other make the number 11, they sell these on 11/11 for Korean men to give to their WAGS (Wives and Girlfriends).
ARE YOU JOKING ME!?
This is the biggest sham I’ve seen yet. But, Korean’s eat this shit up. Our whole school is in a frenzy about this – even the teachers. I got some even after I told all the students how ridiculous and stupid I thought the whole thing was.
I’ve seen some pretty dumb holidays, but this one is at the top. Like women need another excuse to get things from men.
*Post lunch update: They served pepero’s in the school cafeteria.
*Post lunch/eating pepero’s update: The almond ones are quite tasty. I still think it’s dumb.
