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.
