Why do Asians throw peace signs in pictures??

Hey readers! This post is just for fun. In one of my previous posts, http://iambeautiful20.blogspot.com/2010/01/new-year-new-bangs.html
 I asked everyone if they knew why Asians throw peace signs in pictures because my boyfriend wants to know ^_^. My good friend Jazya sent me a comment on facebook in reagrds to this question. I copied and pasted her comment below.

Jayza Baylon- hi becky! u know y asians do a lot of peace signs in pictures? here's the history according to my sister's japanese friend.. it all started with the japanese. they asked little kids to pose like that in pictures to promote world peace. everybody thinks it cute at the same time meaningful..so kids, teens and even adults pose like that..soon more neighboring countries like korea and taiwan follow..until it spread like swine flu all over asia esp in PI cuz of koreanovelas and chinovela invasions..lol! *kawaii* (^^,)v (i hope it answers kiko's question) happy new year to both of u. mwah!

Also, one of my blogger friend Louzee did a post about this http://listentolouzee.blogspot.com/2009/11/why-do-asians-do-that.html .Check out her blog!

Have a good one everyone!!
