White Day in Japan

Today, on 14th march, We in Japan, are celebrating White Day. This to me, is something new. Having mostly been single on Valentine's Day ( Feb 14) , I've never celebrated this festival the traditional way. Yes, the diehard free spirit that I am , I've always celebrated it. with friends. First in India, I celebrated it with a friend from College. Her B'day was around the day so we took this opportunity to combine the two days and generally pig out. Not that we needed a reason to do so , but this was twice the fun.
So, coming back to white day. On feb 14, the gals in Japan , buy chocolates for the guys and then the guys return the favor a month later. So, for me , it was twice the fun. The techinician gals in the lab brought in chocolates for the entire lab. I did not trust myself to remember bringing them something a month later. Add to that, I am not really a guy to do so :P . So the next day , I brought in flowers for the gals. My good deed of the day done. And, today , our Korean Post doc brought in chocolates for all us gals. Yay. I got chocolates on both days.
