Happy Valentine’s Day - Tuesday, February 14, 2017
Valentine’s Day is sneaking up on me fast, although I can’t understand how I missed it, as the stores started decorating the day after Christmas. I thought it might be fun to look into the world’s big day of love…. Valentine’s Day.
Here are a few random fun facts from my Valentine’s Day research (www.softschools.com):
On Valentine’s Day there are at least 36 million heart shaped boxes of chocolates sold. (Lots of last minute shoppers like myself)
Men spend double the amount of money on gifts than women. The average man spends $130.00.
There enough candy hearts made each year to stretch from Valentine, Arizona to Rome, Italy and back again. The number of these candy hearts is approximately 8 billion.
There are approximately 50 million roses given on Valentine’s Day.
Approximately 27 percent of those who buy flowers on Valentine’s Day are women, 73 percent are men. 15 percent of women send themselves flowers on Valentine’s Day. (You go girl!)
9 million people purchase Valentine’s gifts for their pets.
The first Valentine’s Day candy box was invented by Richard Cadbury in the late 19th century. ( I thought he only did Easter with the Cadbury Eggs. I love Cadbury eggs.)
Penicillin was introduced on February 14th in 1929. (Hmmmm…..)
If you are looking for a gift other than candy or flowers, then look no more. Wholesale Bandits have lots of ideas for both traditional and nontraditional gifts.
Jewelry may be a traditional gift, but the item itself can be very nontraditional. Visit the Dade City Jewelry online store and shop the jewelry collections for new and trendy jewelry such as the Geometric, Negative Space, and Stackables rings, necklaces, and earrings. There is also a large collection of traditional jewelry and design your own engagement ring feature.
