Happy Valentine's Day!
By edhat staff
Flowers, chocolate, dinner, cards, hugs, and kisses. Today is the nationally recognized day of love. Sure, it might be a commercialized holiday, but there's nothing wrong with expressing your admiration for the special ones in your life. Whether it's a significant other, family, friends, pets, the beach, sunshine, or your morning coffee. Share your love and gratitude.
Now, we did mention it's a commercial holiday and we'd be remiss if we didn't look at the numbers, Ed's favorite thing.
Shoppers are expected to shell out more than $27.4 billion in Cupid’s name this year making Valentine’s Day the second-priciest holiday on the calendar for U.S. consumers. Roughly 31% of people expect their Valentine to spend at least $50 on a gift, according to WalletHub’s 2020 Valentine’s Day Survey. More than 4 in 10 people would also break up with their significant other if he or she spent irresponsibly. Yikes.
