Japanese holidays: Pocky day
November 11 is "Pocky day". This is because 11/11 looks like for Pocky sticks. So you are supposed to eat or give Pocky to friends. This year it is extra much Pocky, 11/11/11, so our university coop celebrates by giving 11 times the normal amount of points (i.e. 11 points instead of 1) for purchases of Pocky that day.
