East Asian Tradition on Valentines Day
« on: February 14, 2012, 04:45:19 pm »
In South Korea, similar to Japan, women give chocolate to men on February 14, and men give non-chocolate candy to women on March 14 (White Day). On April 14 (Black Day), those who did not receive anything on the 14th of Feb or March go to a Korean restaurant to eat black noodles (자장면 jajangmyeon) and "mourn" their single life

I wonder what this tradition would be like in the US.  I wonder if you could sell a lot of noodles that day? lol
