The holiday is finally here. March 14th. One month after the passing of Valentine's Day. We now have White Day. Just recently the manga series by Gosho Aoyama, Detective Conan, just finished up celebrating White Day with a heartbreaking murder and some thoughtful romance by the male cast in this who-dun'-it series.
 

What is White Day!?

If you are unfamiliar with White Day. First off, shame on you. White Day is the holiday celebrated one month exactly after Valentine's Day. Also known as "Reply Day" or "Answer Day". If a girl was to give you chocolates on Valentine's Day. This is the day where you return their feelings with a gift to let them know that those feelings reached you. Rather kind to give you a month to work that out.
 
The history of this holiday reaches back to the late 70s in Japan. It was originally called Marshmallow Day, because a confectionery company was pushing marshmallows to their male clientele. Eventually, it became known as White Day. Not all men have to return the feelings. It all depends on the type of chocolate you received. If you got what is called Obligation Chocolate (giri-choko). You are off the hook. These are given out as more part of a polite gesture. You boys who got Favorite Chocolate (honmei-choko). Better get your rears in gear and go get ready for White Day before it passes.

If you are unsure what to get. I got you covered. White Day, such as the name suggests, has certain kinds of gifts. If the theme behind Valentine's Day is red. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the theme of the gifts for White Day are white. They include: 
  • White Chocolate (possibly dark chocolate)
  • White Cookies
  • White Candies
  • Marshmallows
  • Jewelery (preferably white gold)
  • White Lingerie or other kinds of clothing
 
A tip from me. Be observant and think carefully. Try and think about something your girl does every day or possibly something she is in need of. An example, if she is complaining that she feels cold. Get her some gloves or a scarf. Just try and make sure it is white in color to stick to the theme. Being thoughtful in your gifts will earn you bonus points.

Guys, don't be like Sonoko's boyfriend, Makoto; and certainly don't let Shiratori's show you up!! Remember to answer those feelings!!
