Happy Valentines Day from TJP to you! ♥

Well, why the heck not. ^_^

To make this a little on-topic for us Japanese language/culture learners here on TJP, lets have a brief look at this holiday...

Some old threads/articles from here on TJP about it...
"Japanese Valentine's Day": http://thejapanesepage.com/culture/valentines
"Happy Valentine's Day, from Japan!": http://thejapanesepage.com/forum/viewto ... 14&t=14269
"White Day/ Valentine's Day": http://thejapanesepage.com/forum/viewto ... =14&t=7253

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine%27s_Day#Japan
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Day

And on a related note...
"Christmas in Japan": http://thejapanesepage.com/node/1710
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_worldwide#Japan

Christmas in Japan has a predominantly secular celebration that has become associated with a time for couples to spend it together and exchange presents etc... giving it a romantic nuance etc.

I confessed to my friend today. Or rather, I gave her gifts, was awkwardly silent, she hugged me and I ran away. :blush:


I wonder if she even understood my intentions...? :sweatdrop: I got so nervous...

Yeah, I'll unavoidably be seeing her tomorrow... But I'm not sure whether or not I should follow suit if she acts like nothing happened... Or should I bring it up again? I can see it now:

um... er... about yesterday... I just... :blush:
