History Of White Day

Valentine’s Day was initially attempted in Japan in 1936, but it didn’t begin to gain popularity until the 1970s, resulting in a different celebration from the West. First, it was an opportunity for the girls to express their interest in a boy. In 1977, a confectionery company was founded in Fukuoka, that sold marshmallows to men on March 14, naming it Marshmallow Day.

Japan was the first country to celebrate the Day in 1978. The National Confectionery Industry Association started Valentine’s Day as an “answer day,” which requires men to pay back the women who gave them chocolates and other gifts on Valentine’s Day. In Japan, on Valentine’s Day, only women used to give some gifts to men, so in return, this day was decided to show women that their men love them too.
