Poppy Day vs Pocky Day?

Who knew that November 11 was Pocky day instead of Poppy day in Japan? IMG_5782The eleventh day of the eleventh month (11.11) supposedly looks like vertical Pocky sticks. my Japanese friends were surprised that other countries did not celebrate Pocky day just as I was initially surprised way back when that they did not wear poppies or have a moment of silence.  I think I will stick with my Poppy day, thank you very much.
