[valentine's day]

There are some strange things in Japan. What makes Valentine's day so strange is that girls give chocolate to boys. It's opposite to western tradition, although, that opposition is becoming traditional thing in Japan. As far as I know, that day was set way before I was born. My mom and sister always gave me chocolates on Valentine's day and I felt love to them especially when I didn't get any from girls.

I don't know when valentine's day started in Japan, although, I never thought that it's a holy day. In Japan, it's just an another commercialised-celebration day. It is the day when boys get an idea of their acception, or it's the day a boy become legend in local area. Although, sometimes that day completely destroys someone's ego, or suddenly a bad boy becomes a very nice boy and so on.

Anyway, I noticed same thing watching at the girl's behavior here in US. Many girls are conscious about Valentine's day. I was about to say "I know that feeling, sweetheart.", but I never said that because it might cause a question - "Are you gay?".

Anyway, I went to my friend's wedding to the mountain over the weekend. I hanged out with my friends and I did Tarot reading. The guy found this interesting sentence from the book - "Love is the law, love under will".
