Valentine’s Day is For Lovers

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.

Just like every commercialized holiday, the focus is on spending. Consumers are expected to shell out more than $23.9 billion for Valentine’s Day this year, making it the third-priciest holiday on the calendar.

According to WalletHub’s 2022 Valentine’s Day Survey, roughly 36% of people expect their Valentine to spend at least $50 on a gift, but 54% of people would also break up with their significant other if he or she spent irresponsibly, so fear is a factor, too. Yikes.

But what about the candy specifically? That will rake in $2.2 Billion for this holiday alone. If you’ve driven past Sees Candy off La Cumbre and seen the line out the door, it makes sense.

See all the numbers below.
