It is a day to express Mei-Shun’s gratitude to her family and friends. In her memory, when she stayed in Cheltenham, U.K., her host mother Clair gave Bill, her partner a humorous card only. No sweets were exchanged between couples there. Some say Japanese custom is a kind of conspiracy by confectionary companies, yet it seems all right. Such a small gift always warms up your heart, doesn’t it?
