In Japan, “White Day” is observed every March 14 as a special follow-up to Valentine’s Day, it is customary for males to give candies, marshmallows, cookies, white chocolates, or other treats to females. In Europe and North America, February 14th is widely celebrated as Valentine’s Day, and both males and females typically give cards and presents to members of the other gender. When this custom first took hold in Japan during the late 1970s, it was initially billed by confectionery companies specifically as a day for girls to give gifts to the boy they liked. This conception became the norm in Japan, although some exchange chocolates with friends of both genders. White Day was separately established as an occasion for males to express their appreciation to females. The observance of White Day spread rapidly across Japan, and now this day is also observed by many in South Korea, Taiwan, and other countries. On White Day, males also are known to give accessories or flowers to sweethearts or other females they cherish. White Day represents an interesting Asian twist to an old Western tradition, and it continues to be popular.
