Other holidays and special occasions

South Korea's culture of celebration and gift-giving is extensive. Other holidays that are popularly observed include Children's Day on May 5, Parents' Day on May 8, and themed "love days" on the 14th of each month. The most well-known "love days" are Valentine's Day (February 14th), in which women give chocolates to men, White Day (March 14th), in which men give gifts to women, and Black Day (April 14th), in which those who didn't get any gifts eat black noodles. Other days include Kiss Day in June, Photo Day in September, and Wine Day in October.
