Valentine’s Day

Oh, Valentine’s Day. It isn’t my favorite holiday — but at least back in the States, there are all of the half-off candy sales on February 15th.

Here, though, in Japan, it is entirely different. Or at least it feels that way.

Back home, I can ignore the custom completely. Unfortunately, I feel almost obligated to go along with it, and make chocolates for my friends. (Which is more difficult that it looks — I somehow successfully just burned mine. And melted the spatula. So I’ll have to buy a new one.) It would be fine, except I ended up making more friends than I expected, and now I have way too many people to make chocolates for.

Well, at least it’s fun, right?

So here’s to hoping that it all goes well, and that I don’t burn any more.

  1. I find it to be a ton of fun here in Japan. A great excuse to make sweets for friends! Only if you’re like me, your apartment doesn’t have an oven. I spent the weeks leading up to Valentines pinning no bake dessert recipes on

  2. Too many friends? Now that’s a problem I’m afraid I can’t complain about. Maybe if I started making chocolates and handing them out, I could change things on that account.
