白色情人节 White Day 2013



Have you heard of a White Day?

It's day that is marked in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and China on March 14, one month after Valentine's Day.

“白色情人节”(英语:White Day;日语:ホワイトデー;韩语:화이트데이)最早起源于三世纪时的罗马。罗马皇帝在2月14日救了一对因违反恋爱结婚禁令而要被处死的恋人,为了纪念这一天而设立了情人节。而在一个月后的3月14日,这对获救的恋人宣誓恋情将至死不渝,为纪念这一天,于是另订为白色情人节。

另外,这也是跟日本的民间传说有关的一个情人节。在日本,还是大男人主义的天下,2月14 日多数是女孩子送礼向心上人示爱,若男方亦有意,就会在3月14日回礼以示双方心心相印。所以,他们就把三月十四日这一天,订为“白色情人节”。但在港、 台等地,男女的区分便没有那么明显了。3月14日回送对方一份情人礼物,那就表示彼此已经心心相印了。





And today happens to be 14th March 2013, a white day. :)

I put my foot forward and step ahead into something which feels like an important phase of my life. However a strange sense of uneasiness crept up upon me. I am having slight doubts and wondering if it is a correct decision. Maybe I worry too much at times, but dealing with adulthood-ship is not an easy task, really!

I guess I should not elaborate too much on it. This is meant to be a happy and lovey dovey day. :)

Oh boys and girls, have a Happy White Day 2013!
