Pepero Day is celebrated on 11/11 because Pepero (known as Pocky in Japan) is long and straight and if you hold up 4 sticks it looks like 4 1’s. Usually kids hand out Pepero to their friends and teachers, but my school banned it because it’s a commercial holiday. 55% of all Pepero sales are in November every year.
My friends and I decided to celebrate Pepero Day by having a big Pepero making party. We bought meltable chocolate, plain cookie sticks and molds. It was a great night.
