    I don't actually know when, but it would be somewhere in 1950s or something. It was started as a marketing method to bring the sales up, I think so.

    It's rumored that it started way back in like the 1400s when a Valentine, a Catholic priest married his lover, even though it was banned for them to do so...

    the last letter he sent to his Darling ended in "Your Valentine", and that really caught on and so on and so forth...

    it might have been brough to the Japanese when the Americans invited themselves into their country...

    *.* but i don't care if it's a corporate holiday!!! it's another reason to spend lavishly on my Darling!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Valentine's Day in Japan...

    Japan has two valentine's day-ish holidays: Valentines Day on Feburary 14th and White Day on March 14th. On Valentine's Day, the girls give chocolate to all their friends, but there are special kinds of chocolates to give to guys they like.

    On White Day, one month later, the guys who recieved chocolate are supposed to give the people they got chocolate from either a small gift, or chocolate in return. Again, there is a special kind of chocolate they buy if they return the feelings of the one who gave them the special chocolate to begin with.

    So basically, Valentine's Day is the girl's turn, and White Day is the guy's turn. Chocolate companies get double the business in one year. Commercialism at work here folks!
