What to give your loved one on White Valentine's Day?

By Josie Wu Translated by Ann Lee

Lovers in Taiwan have three Valentine's Days to celebrate, the Western Valentine's Day on February 14th, the Chinese lunar Qi-Xi on July 7th of the lunar calendar, and one that originated from Japan, White (Valentine's) Day. This all goes to say that Taiwan is an island full of romance.

Traditionally in Japan, it is the women who give gifts to men on Valentine's Day. Then, on White Day on March 14th it is the turn of the boyfriend to give something back--though the rules are not so strict these days on who gives whom what on which day.
