I was really happy with my own work at the ‘ProjectValentine’, so as a follow-up to the romantic holiday came up, so did the idea of arranging this. Even though I tried to get more people to join in, I didn’t really know that many people, so in the end it ended up with just me and a friend of mine.

So, what is ‘WhiteDay’?:
In Japan, Valentine’s Day is typically observed by girls and women presenting chocolate gifts (either store-bought or handmade), usually to boys or men, as an expression of love, courtesy, or social obligation. Handmade chocolate is usually preferred by the recipient because of the perception of sincerity, effort, and emotion put into a home-made confection.

On White Day, the reverse happens: men who received a honmei-choco (‘chocolate of love’) or giri-choco (‘courtesy chocolate’) on Valentine’s Day are expected to return the favor by giving gifts. Traditionally, popular White Day gifts are cookies, jewelry, white chocolate, white lingerie, and marshmallows. Sometimes the term literally, sanbai gaeshi (‘triple the return’) is used to describe the generally recited rule that the return gift should be two to three times the worth of the Valentine’s gift.

Here are the results of this event’s hard work:
