More Mushy Stuff . . .

More useless information for you to ponder:


Want some flowers? Don't wait for them; send 'em to yourself:
  • 15% of U.S. women send themselves flowers on Valentine's Day.
  • 73% of people who buy flowers for Valentine's Day are men, while only 27 percent are women.

Absolutely no reason not to have at least one of these!!

  • More than 50 percent of cards are sold the week of the holiday, with the largest and most elaborate Valentine cards sold 48 hours before February 14.
  • 70 percent of those celebrating the holiday give a card, followed by a telephone call (49 percent), gift (48 percent), special dinner (37 percent), candy (33 percent) restaurant meal (30 percent), and flowers (19 percent).
  • Teachers will receive the most Valentine's Day cards, followed by children, mothers, wives, and then, sweethearts. Children ages 6 to 10 exchange more than 650 million Valentine's cards with teachers, classmates, and family members.
  • Hallmark has over 1330 different cards specifically for Valentine's Day.

Comfort food coming up!

  • More than 35 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate will be sold for Valentine's Day.

Don't worry about the money. Your pet's worth it.

  • Valentine's Day is big business. Consumers will spend an average of $77.43 on Valentine's Day gifts this year. E-commerce retailers expect to rack up about $650 million in sales of food, candy, flowers, and other Valentine's Day gifts. Of that amount about $350 million will be for gifts and flowers and another $45 million will be spent on food (including chocolate) and wine.
  • About 3% of pet owners will give Valentine's Day gifts to their pets.
And have a great Valentine's Day!
