Happy White Day │ NEX-7 & SEL24F18Z │ 24mm, ISO 200, f/4, 1/60, RAW
What girl doesn't like being woken up with a little card and box of chocs? Charlie certainly seemed pretty happy this morning! Though she'd forgotten that today was White Day, I certainly hadn't. I'd previously written that on the 14th Feb, girls are to give their loved ones a card (and maybe some chocolates), but that on the 14th of March, the boys reciprocate with a [larger] box of chocolates. Here, however, the men don't get the women a card. I guess cards are too girly? Well, after much searching, I found one, nevertheless.
The term sanbai gaeshi (三倍返し, "thrice the return") is used to describe this rule. Not returning the gift is perceived as the men placing himself in a position of superiority, even if excuses are given. Returning a present of equal value is considered as a way to say that you are ending the relationship.
I think Charlie knows the score ;)
