April 14 – Orange Day in Japan

Posted on April 14, 2017

On February 14, Japanese celebrate the romantic holiday Valentine's Day by women giving their partners gifts, often homemade chocolates. 

On March 14, White Day, men give their partners gifts. Some follow the tradition of "triple the return" by giving gifts that are about three times more costly than whatever they received on Valentine's Day.

Orange growers in Japan decided to create a new holiday, which debuted in 1994. This time, both partners give each other gifts - either oranges or orange-colored gifts.

So that's how April 14 became Orange Day!

Apparently, even though it is a new holiday, Orange Day is pretty popular. There is (or was?) even a TV series called Orange Days.
