Valentine's Day here in Japan has a bit of unique twist to it in that only the women give gifts. But for all those women out there fretting, don't worry as the women get gifts returned, often with interest, a month later on March 14th, which is known as White Day. It's also common practice to give Valentine gifts to work colleagues, friends, etc, not just the 'special' someone in your life, and as such it's quite common for men to receive several chocolates. The news reported that some of the more famous baseball stars and TV celebs get up to a thousand chocolates or more from fans alone. Imagine how long their White Day shopping list must be!
