Pepero day


A colleague came to my desk today and gave me two packets of sweets, home made sticks of pastry dipped in chocolate and covered with little bits of nuts. “It’s Pepero day”, she told me.

November 11th, “11/11” – those ones resemble sticks, so it’s become popular in recent years to give gifts of Pepero, produced by the company Lotte and very similar to Pocky sticks in Japan.

There’s a ‘no eating’ rule in the library, so I’ve brought home the gifts I was given. Well, I did eat some, which were delicious, but not when the students were watching.
