Will you be my valentine?

One of the most liked and celebrated days arrived in Japan. 

It is Valentine's Day. 

The day, you give your boyfriend/husband, your males colleagues, your male acquaintances and whoever male you may care for Chocolate. The best would be handmade, but bought chocolate is better than nothing.

In the end, your aim is to show, that you care for them.

So much talk of who receive chocolate... but what do the guys do in Japan on Valentine's day? Do they take out their spouse like it is custom in America and increasingly in Europe?

No. They don't. At least not yet.

But isn't it unfair that almost every female starts from January to look for the best receipts, ideas and even takes a hell of a time to prepare everything?

Well... in Japan every male shows his gratitude for the received chocolate on "White Day" in March. A day when it is the guy's turn to return the gratitude and to give back sweets to every female he cares for. Still, thanks to globalization it gets custom to take out one's spouse as well.

Outside of Japan, I would wear one of these outfits to spend Valentine's Day (since my boyfriend arrives here in 6 days earliest)



Which one do you like more?

Outfit 1 (for spring days) and Outfit 2 (for winter days)

    1. Thank your for your comment, Yienia. That's true - White Day is barely known since we do not really celebrate that. It is a neat idea though,
