Pi Day (3.14) – try these ideas at Scholastic.
White Day (Japan and Korea: girls gave boys chocolates on Valentine’s Day, now the boys give the girls a present back. On Valentine’s Day some women give out Giri choco, or ‘obligation chocolates’, to male coworkers without signifying romantic interest; those men still have to get a present to give back. In China it is the opposite, and now the boys’ turn to receive a gift.)
