Mommy Moments- Valentine's Day.

mommy moments


Here in Japan people celebrate Valentine's day too. However a little different! Here in Japan,Valentine's day is when women are expected to participate in Girichoco (Obligatory Chocolate). They not only give chocolate to their love ones, but also to the men they associate with, like bosses, co-workers, friends... etc.
On White day ( March 14) is when men reciprocate to women for the candies they received. Guys are supposed to return gifts (usually more extravagant than what they received).


~From Kei and Rio~

Hubby got a 2 box of chocolates from Kei and Rio. I think these chocolates are great gifts that comes from the heart.

Join us here in Mommy Moments Happy weekend!!
