Of 14ths and Chocolate

 

How Koreans (and Japanese) celebrate Hearts Day aka Valentine’s Day is quite different from how the Philippines and many parts of the world do. In Korea, it’s the best day for the ladies to “confess their affection” through giving chocolates or small tokens to the guys they admire. The guys then, reciprocate that affection after a month, which they call White Day (March 14th).

Happy Pepero Day

South Korea — 해피 빼빼로 데이~ Aside from Valentine’s day and White day, today marks another sweet occasion especially for high school students and couples. Today, Korea celebrates Pepero day. If one haven’t heard about Pepero, it’s a pretzel covered with chocolate, white or dark, almonds, melon or strawberry produced by Lotte. It can be compared to Japan’s snack called Pocky.
