White Day

Since I’ve given up Pi Day for Tau Day, that leave room for another holiday on March 14. White Day is a day that is marked in Japan, China, Taiwan, South Korean, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, and Cambodia on March 14, one month after Valentine’s Day.

The reasoning is that men receive dark chocolate candies from women on Valentine’s Day. They should make up for it by giving white chocolate to women on White Day.

In fact the 14th of every month is a romantic holiday in South Korea.
