Valentine’s Day by the numbers (Infographic)

I’m a sappy romantic at heart, and as much as I detest the commercialisation of something as natural as romance, this Infographic from The History Channel makes some interesting observations about Valentine’s Day in the States:

  • 62% of adults say they celebrate the holiday
  • Men spend an average of $150 on Valentine’s gifts. Women spend half that amount!
  • Americans spend $448-million on candy in the week before Valentine’s Day. That’s over $60-million a day spent on just sweets and chocolates!
  • Here’s more – click on the image to enlarge if needed.
