So naturally this is the time of year to consider that little romantic holiday. Some suggest it was invented by hallmark to sell cards, but there is obviously a lineage and lore associating in so many ways to different countries and cultures, dating back hundreds of year all over the world for St. Valentines Day. I got a little curious and decided to go on a little internet book report style scavenger hunt. Here are some totally serious and maybe a few BS stats I found from sources that range from CNN to random Joe Smith blogger!
The Stats –
-More than 35 Million Heart Shaped Boxes of Chocolate Will Be Sold For Valentines Day
-Over 110 Million Roses Will be Sold Over the 3 Days That Valentines Day Falls
-Women Purchase 85% of All Valentines
-3% of Pet Owners Will Treat Their Pets On Valentines Day
-In the USA – 65% of Men Do Not Make Valentine’s Day Plans in Advance
– 21 % of Consumers Will Spend $4.8 Billion on Jewelry This Year
– 60% of Valentines Given Are To Family While 20% are Given to Teachers (The Third Highest Group)
-One Third of Valentines Consumers Will Purchase Gifts for Loved Ones From Tablets
-2 Billion Dollars Will be Spent On Candy This Year
-50 Million Dollars Will Be Spend On Jewelry This Year
Speaking such expenditures a few of my fellow conscious energy warriors have pitched in to provide a group special for our shops collectively!
