While Valentine’s Day in the U.S. is traditionally celebrated on February 14th, the holiday of love traces back to the 1950s in Japan with a different tradition. In Japanese culture, Valentine’s Day signified a day where traditionally women would present men with various chocolates. White Day was later established and is celebrated on March 14th, where men would then return the love and appreciation to women by gifting them with sweet treats. Whether you celebrate the traditional Japanese way or not, be sure to stop by Senka Cafe on Onizuka Way next to Weller Court and select the perfect Valentine’s Chocolates for your significant other, gal, pal or friend.
