I like the Japanese tradition because I feel like it's more casual than our Valentine's Day. Because people are able to give gifts to casual friends and bosses, not just to husbands or boyfriends, which I think is really cool. And I don't think we do that in the United States, I think we don't at least. Sorry, if I'm wrong 😄! I don't know much about Valentine traditions because my family doesn't celebrate it....my birthday is on the 14th too, so that may be why.
