White Day

White Day (ホワイトデー ,Howaito dē, a Japanese wasei-eigo) is a holiday celebrated on March 14, one month after Valentine's Day. In Japan this day is a widespread holiday, much like Valentine's Day. It is also observed in South Korea.

White Day in Japan

In Japan, Valentine's Day is observed by females who present chocolatecookies, underwear, white chocolate, marshmallows as well as jewelry, and stuffed animals. Sometimes the term sanbai gaeshi
(literally, "thrice the return") is used to describe the generally
recited rule that the return gift should be two to three times the cost
of the Valentine's gift. gifts (either store-bought or handmade), usually to a male, as an
expression of love. The handmade chocolate is usually preferred by the
receiver, because it is a sign that the receiving male is the girl's
"only one". On White Day, the converse happens: males who received a
"honmei-choco" [chocolate of love] or "giri-choco" [chocolate of
courtesy] on Valentine's Day are expected to return the favor by giving
gifts, usually more expensive. Traditionally, popular White Day gifts
are

White Day in South Korea

White Day is also observed in South Korea, with an additional later Black Day observed for those sharing singleness.

Origin

White Day was first celebrated in 1978 in Japan.
It was started by the National Confectionery Industry Association
(全国飴菓子工業協同組合) as an "answer day" to Valentine's Day on the grounds that
men should pay back the women who gave them chocolate and other gifts
on Valentine's Day. In 1977 a Fukuoka-based confectionery company, Ishimura Manseido (石村萬盛堂), marketed marshmallows to men on March 14, calling it Marshmallow Day (マシュマロデー).

Soon thereafter, confectionery companies began marketing white chocolate. Now, men give both white and dark chocolate, as well as other edible and non-edible gifts, such as jewelry or objects of sentimental value, or white clothing like lingerie, to women from whom they received chocolate on Valentine's Day one month earlier. If the chocolate given to him was giri choco, the man as well may not be expressing actual romantic interest, but rather a social obligation.

White Day

White Day (ホワイトデー, White Day) adalah hari memberi hadiah untuk wanita yang jatuh tanggal 14 Maret. Perayaan ini berasal dari Jepang dan bukan tradisi Eropa atau Amerika. Hadiah berupa marshmallow atau permen diberikan sebagai balasan atas hadiah cokelat yang diterima pria sebulan sebelumnya di Hari Valentine. Di zaman sekarang, hadiah yang diberikan untuk wanita yang disenangi dapat berupa bunga, saputangan, perhiasan, atau barang-barang lain yang disukai wanita.

Pertama kali dirayakan tahun 1980 di Jepang, perayaan ini sekarang juga dirayakan di negara Korea Selatan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, dan Indonesia. Perayaan White Day berawal dari strategi koperasi produsen permen Jepang yang ingin meningkatkan penjualan permen. Bahan baku permen adalah gula yang berwarna putih (white) sehingga disebut White Day. Ide perayaan diambil dari "Hari Marshmallow" yang merupakan acara promosi kue marshmallow Tsuru no ko yang diadakan toko kue di kota Fukuoka.

Asal-usul

Di Hari Valentine, wanita dari berbagai kelompok umur di Jepang memiliki tradisi memberi hadiah cokelat kepada pria yang disenangi, teman sekolah, rekan kerja, pacar, ayah, atau suami. Pria yang menerima cokelat berkeinginan membalasnya, dan niat ini disambut pedagang permen di sekitar pertengahan tahun 1970-an dengan mencetuskan ide "hadiah balasan" berupa kue kering, marshmallow, atau permen.

Strategi penjualan permen sebagai "hadiah balasan" ternyata berhasil meningkatkan angka penjualan, sehingga koperasi produsen permen nasional wilayah Kanto menetapkan 14 Maret sebagai "White Day". Di tahun 1978, koperasi produsen permen menciptakan slogan untuk White Day sebagai "hari untuk mengirim permen". Setelah dipersiapkan selama 2 tahun, perayaan White Day yang pertama dilangsungkan secara nasional di Jepang pada tahun 1980.
