White Day (ホワイトデー Howaito Dē?) is a day that is marked in Japan, South Korea,[1] Taiwan,[2] and China[3] on March 14, one month after Valentine's Day.

ObservationEdit

In Japan, Valentine's Day is typically observed by girls and women presenting chocolate gifts (either store-bought or handmade), usually to boys or men, as an expression of love, courtesy, or social obligation.

On White Day, the reverse happens: men who received a 'chocolate of love' (本命チョコ honmei-choco?) or 'courtesy chocolate' (義理チョコ giri-choco?)[4] on Valentine's Day are expected to return the favor by giving gifts.[5]

In South KoreaEdit

In South Korea, White Day is March 14. And it is also observed as a day for men to give women sweets, as a sort of repayment for the gifts women gave on Valentine's Day (usually chocolate). However, in contrast to Japan, men generally purchase lollipops or other hard candies for the holiday. Chocolate gift sets are also sold for the holiday, but the majority of the gifts sets are filled with hard candies.[6]
