White Day - 14th March

I totally forgot that yesterday was White Day.

If there ever was the most commercialised Hallmark holiday ever, it would have to be White Day.

I think I explained it before on Valentine's Day but basically White Day is celebrated on March 14th where guys give chocolates or whatever back to the girl(s) who gave them chocolates on Valentine's Day, or to the person they fancy.

In the work environment it's the same, but the meaning is more of appreciation and respect for their fellow colleagues.

I received beautifully wrapped buscuits, Starbucks' chocolate coated coffeebeans, almond caramel slices and the most exquisite chocolates. 'Tea-time'-sensei gave me these chocolate squares which were delightfully melt-in-your-mouth soft and dusted in cocoa. Apparently they're a famous type of chocolate from Hokkaido made by this master chocolate company.
They were heavenly!!

The most manufacured Hallmark holiday? How about Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentine's Day, ...

It's almost as bad as the great joke deBeers has played on the world.

I cooked up some ANZAC bikkies and lamingtons for the girls that made me stuff for Valentine's Day. Only three of the five came to claim their prize... I couldn't figure out who the other two were. On Valentine's Day, they just gave me stuff and vanished before I could get their names.
