Q.

What are you obligated to do if you received chocolates from your coworkers on Valentine’s Day?

A.

For starters, only men receive chocolates from women on Valentine’s Day. So, if you’re a man and you received chocolates from your female friends and coworkers, you have an obligation to reciprocate the gesture by giving candy or chocolates back to them. We have a special day for this in Japan called White Day, which is on March 14th, exactly one month after Valentine’s Day.

There’s no pressure to buy anything fancy or bring anything homemade; a bag of chocolates or a box of cookies from a department store on your way to work is perfect!
