Happy Valentine's Day

Here's hoping all of you with sweethearts have a fun Valentine's Day. In America, the tradition is frequently centered around the man giving his sweetheart a gift of flowers, chocolates or jewelry. It is often a two-way street with women also giving gifts.

Did you know they celebrate Valentine's Day in Japan too? There, girls give boys they like chocolates - preferably homemade. It's a big sign of popularity to count up the bags at the end of the day. Don't worry girls. Boys reciprocate in March on White Day.

If you have fun traditions for celebrating the day of hearts, comment here.
