ASAPA White Day Event!



White Day (ホワイトデー) is a special day that is celebrated in Japan one month after Valentine’s day! On this day, men present gifts to women who have gifted them chocolates on Valentine’s Day to express their appreciation.

The Alberta Society for Asian Popular Arts (ASAPA), who bring you Animethon, will be hosting our very first White Day Event! We look forward to enjoying this special day with everyone, and you're encouraged to cosplay. See you all there!
