Pepero Day

Pepero Day is an non-official holiday here in Korea solely based on the stick cookie of the same name that is oddly familiar to arguably more famous Pocky. Pepero Day is one of those Korean specific novelties that is a staple in any living in korea blog. Take for instance Pepero Day 2004, 2005, 2006, and of course, 2007. At first it may seem like a cute equivalent to valentines day, but then you soon realize what a annoyingly monolithic corporate driven holiday Pepero Day actually is.

First, there the commercials:
