Happy Valentine's Day!! ♥♥  
Happy Valentine's Day!! ♥♥

It's a day late, but I figure that better late than never! ^__^ Last night, I was pretty sick, so I went to bed early and slept through the night. Tonight, I'm heading off to a restaurant in Shinjuku called "Soupya" to celebrate with a few (also single) friends, one of my favorite holidays of the year! ^__^

Whether you love Valentine's day or hate it or think that it's a complete farce, I hope that your day was great! ^o^ I personally really love Valentine's day, but then again I love anything that could possibly be romantic in any way. *such a sucker for romance* How about you? How do you feel about Valentine's day? I'm single and I have been on Vday for years, but I still love it just as much as before-- I guess that it doesn't really strike me as having any kind of pressure attached, which I've heard before. It's just a great excuse to have fun. ^^

The tradition in Japan is for women to make chocolates for their loved one ("honmei-choco"), for their friends ("tomo-choco"), and coworkers ("giri-choco") of which the receiving boys (if there are any) are supposed to reciprocate a month later on white day. I don't really care for the japanese celebrations, so I'd rather just go with the American way and give valentines and candy! ^O^ In the case of this year, I made fudge which is chilling in the fridge and I had better go pack up now! ^o^

I probably won't really like it until I get to spend it with a special someone. So, for now, discount candy on the 15th is where it's at~

Though, really. Ever since my brothers & I were kids, we'd wake up on the 14th to a card & candy, and sometimes a toy or plush, from our parents. It stopped happening for a while, but then this morning, there was a card & a heart box set out for Ev and I. It felt really nostalgic & happy. ♥

Mmmmm discount-candy!! Ahhhh I miss all of the delicious candy that America has. Maybe next year I'll have to make sure that I'm in America on the 15th so that I can take advantage of the sales!! *will find any reason* >:D

Uwaa, that's so cute. ^__^ I can't remember if we got Valentine's things from our parents when I was little.. I think sometimes. Mostly we just bought fun valentines for all of our friends. It kinda makes me want a family of my own, so that I can do all of these fun things with them. But I'm too young for kids! ^^;;;
