White Day

Today is White Day! In Japan, women buy men chocolates on Valentine's Day; men then repay the favor by buying gifts for women on White Day. Curious! Mike's (female) co-workers told him that "accessories" are considered the proper gifts for White Day - jewelry, handbags, etc. Perhaps I should thank them - I think I'll be getting the better end of this deal! Actually, we've no plan to celebrate White Day - Mike's work schedule has him in Tokyo until later tonight and on the phone as soon as he gets home (somewhat reminiscent of Valentine's Day, actually...), and besides, we celebrated Valentine's Day in typically American fashion. Maybe next year!
