White Day

White Day is a Japanese holiday made up in 1978 by the National Confectionery Industry Association. It is the opposite of Valentines day. On Valentines day girls give guys chocolate. On White day guys give girls gifts. If a guy received a gift/chocolate on Valentines day he is expected to give a gift back. The return gift is expected to be more expensive. Though guys can give gifts to girls he did not receive anything from. Some common gifts are jewelry, candy, marshmallows, cookies, and stuffed animals. Occasionally the gift has a meaning besides just being a gift for example if the guy gives the girl a handkerchief it means he doesn't love her . The handkerchief is to be used to wipe away her tears.
