I am thankful for
The aroma of fresh paper,
The pen’s superb utility
And the schoolyard’s pleasing scenery.
I am thankful for
The knowledge I have gained,
The skills I have mastered
And the positive attitude I have acquired.
I am thankful for
My teachers’ excellent teaching,
And unrivaled dedication.
To all teachers past, present and future: You will be remembered on this Thanksgiving Day and beyond.

Valentine’s Day is the day on which lovers everywhere express their love to each other. One of the ways the man in the relationship can express his love for the woman of his life is to give her candy and flowers as tokens of his love. This day is observed in most Western countries. The Japanese also celebrate Valentine’s Day, but not without an interesting twist. It is the woman who is supposed to give her man gifts (mostly chocolates) and not the other way around.
Japanese men almost always prefer Valentine chocolates from stores over homemade chocolates or cookies. This is due to their fear of “contamination”. There have been many instances of overzealous girls inserting their saliva or blood into their homemade Valentine chocolates. Men find this form of witchcraft or extreme obsession rather disgusting. How did they find out? Some girls downright confess to this (right after their men eat the chocolates of course).
