Valentine, My Valentine


Valentine’s Day is fast upon us and men are expected, as usual, to spend more than women on flowers, gifts, cards and other related sundries. According to the National Geographic, a total of $14.7b was spent on  Valentine’s Day, in the US in 2009, and approximately $14.1b in 2010. Significant figures no doubt.

Over the years, Valentine’s Day has evolved from being a celebration of love for couples, to a celebration of love for all relationships. The video posted below (from History.com) shows the origins of Valentine’s Day.

If you observe it, have a great Valentine’s Day. If  you don’t,  have  a great week ahead.
