February 15, 2013 - Heartfelt Images

Yesterday was Valentine's Day, filled with flowers and chocolates and dinners and kisses and cheesy romantic comedies. As you know, Ed is a guy who likes numbers. Instead of buying Mrs. Ed flowers this year, he was more interested in how many flowers were being purchased. Check out the fun Valentine's Day facts that put a smile on Ed's face.

  • More than 36 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate are sold for Valentine's Day each year.
  • About 8 billion candy hearts will be produced this year; that?s enough candy to stretch from Rome, Italy to Valentine, Arizona 20 times and back again.
  • About 1 billion Valentine's Day cards are exchanged in US each year.
  • 73% of people who buy flowers for Valentine's Day are men, while only 27 percent are women.
  • In 2012, an estimated 198 million roses were sold for Valentine's Day.

    In the news: A small power outage surged in Goleta, a small series of booms and window rattling was felt all over Santa Barbara, and Edhat readers shared heart-shaped photos on Valentine's Day. Read these stories and more, below.
