    Thanks, Pazzy. That helps. ( Of course, why didn't I think of referring to wikipedia in the first place...! )

    Re: Valentines Day in Japan.

    Well, in Malaysia some people celebrate Valentine's day just to make profit from it (selling flowers, chocolate etc.), some celebrate it just for fun, some take Valentine's Day seriously and some don't even bother to celebrate (I'm in this category). For me, I rather spend my money to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday (not much, just buy some affordable/cheap gift will be more than enough. She don't mind, that's why I like her ). Or maybe I just spend my money buying manga, that will be much better.

    Re: Valentines Day in Japan.

    I'm from North Carolina (not like that really matters I guess), but there really isn't a certain way we do Valentines Day. I do remember in Elementary school we would decorate brown paper lunch bags and set them on our desk. Then we would all line up and place those little Valentine cards into each bag with a lolly pop or some small candy. (the Valentine cards would look like this http://img-nex.theonering.net/images...book/11670.JPG but you would buy your favorite show )
    In middle school the school would sell roses and you could go and order one to be sent to your friend or loved one in the school. They had little poems/sayings that came with them. I remember it was a big deal to get one, but I wasn't all that into it. Now in high school they do the same thing, but the chorus class sings you a song that the sender picks. It's really embarrassing to get one. xD
    But it's funny to watch the person that gets the flower sink down into their desk and pretend that they're not there. I just send one or two to my friends because I know that they'd die of embarrassment. I also get chocolates/candy from my mom. I'll go and buy her something that we both like so that I can steal the candy when she's not looking. D:>

    In Sweden we celebrate Valentines day as most other European countries do. Give gifts, mostly chocolate, roses, jewelery etc.
    In my previous school we kinda changed the theme from love to more friendship. We had a theme day filled with different things concering love/friendship. Like writing poetry, debating, learning to know other people better and so on.
    We also had these squares on the floor made of tape and when two or more people entered it they had to hug.

    Re: Valentines Day in Japan.

    I really like the Japanese version of Valentines day, and that it is divided in two days, not one xD Firstly i discovered how it's goind by reading manga hyhy

    About Poland, here is nothing special. Boys are giving some presents to girls and vice versa. But 7/8 years ago, when i was in primary school, it was mainly boys giving something to girls. Probably, because in Poland it was quesite new ^^

    Re: Valentines Day in Japan.

    I know it's really late for me to reply in this thread, since March 14 has already passed..but still I want to give my opinion...

    I like this kind of celebration in Japan, where girls give guys chocolates or any present...they call it "White Day"...since is just so common that guys mostly gives chocolates or flowers to girls they like or to their loved ones...Here in Philippines, we do celebrate Valentine's Day on Feb.14, as other country also...wherein most guy do really give gifts to the girl they like...but nowadays, I think both the guy & the girl just do exchange gifts to express their love or thanks...and I think Valentine's Day is not just for couples but family, friends & all people who feels loved always!!!
