About Valentine’s Day
Feb. 13 : 01 Day to V’Day
Did you know that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in countries around the world, including Korea?
There, women are the traditional gift bearers on February 14th. But a month later, on March 14th, men return the generosity. The holiday, known as White Day, is so named since the traditional gift is “white chocolate”. In a nod to Korean singles, April 14th is referred to tongue-in-cheek as Black Day, when singles get together with friends and eat black-colored Jajang noodles.
February 14th is Valentines Day – a worldwide celebration of love and romance, marked by giving red roses and chocolate hearts or by sending valentines. Join us as we present a new “Did You Know?” fun fact each day as we countdown to Valentine’s Day, the day of love!
