11 Things That Made Pepero Day Awesome
11/11/2016 was a special day indeed!
(SPOT.ph) Pepero fans were in for a treat last November 11, when the 3rd Pepero Day celebration was held at the Globe Iconic Store in BGC from 11 AM to 11 PM.
Interactive booths allowed attendees to decorate their own Pepero sticks, leave a sweet note on a message wall, and have that message turned into calligraphy art on specially designed Pepero boxes. Also present at the event were online influencers Seph Cham (@SephCham), Trice Nagusara (@TriceNagusara), Miguel Wycoco (@miguelyc) and Ida Anduyan (@idaandu).
More than a celebration of the popular Korean snack, Pepero Day was held to highlight the importance of gratitude and appreciation. “We want Pepero to be a brand that makes people feel special, and that’s what Pepero Day is all about. We want everyone to share a Pepero on Pepero Day to show their appreciation to their friends and loved ones,” says Ian Villaruel, Brand Manager.
Since the celebration happens every November 11 (11-11!), Spot.ph has listed down the 11 highlights of Pepero Day 2016:
