Women all over the world are hoping to receive flowers, gifts and chocolate from men today - a sign of affection to mark Valentine's Day.

She's likely to be giving them, not getting them
But in Japan, things are different. Women are supposed to give chocolate to the men in their lives - boyfriends, co-workers but especially their bosses.
The Japanese call it Giri choco, or obligation chocolate, and it's big business.
Senior executives receive dozens of chocolate boxes from their female staff, which they often take home and feed to their families and children.
The tradition is relatively new. It was started 40 years ago by Japan's leading chocolate manufacturer.
But in a culture where gifts are often used to cement good social relations, it has become entrenched in corporate life.
However, a recent survey found that 70% percent of female company workers would like the custom to end.

STEAK AND BLOWJOB DAY
Every 14th of February you get the chance to display your fondness for your wife or girlfriend by showering her with gifts, flowers, dinner, shows and any other baubles that women find romantic.
Secret...guys feel left out. That's right...left out. There's no special holiday for the ladies to show their appreciation for the men in their life. Men as a whole are either too proud or just too embarrassed to admit it. Which is why a new holiday has been created.
March 20th is now officially "Steak & Blowjob Day."
Simple, effective and self-explanatory...this holiday has been created so your ladies can have a day to show your man just how much you love him. No cards, no flowers, no special nights on the town-the name of the holiday explains it all...just a steak and a BJ. That's it. This twin pairing of Valentine's Day and Steak & BJ Day will usher in a new age of love as men everywhere will try THAT much harder in February to ensure a more memorable March! It's like a perpetual love machine.
The word is already spreading, but as with any new idea, it needs a little push to start the ball rolling. So spread the word, and help bring love and peace to this crazy world.
