Happy Valentine’s Day WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN? By Deb Crossen
I was speaking to a few friends, asking for their advice on content for our Valentine’s Day page here in The Kawartha Promoter. They asked me why I was asking them ... two single women... and both laughed. Then one friend reiterated the story about one Valentine’s Day when she walked by a home in town ... where a woman was shovelling the driveway while a man watched. Isn’t love wonderful? According to entrepreneur.com, here are some fun statistics: • In 2016 in the U.S., Valentine’s Day sales reached an all-time high of $19.7 billion. • $1.7 billion will be spent on chocolate and candy • 19 percent of survey respondents give Valentine’s Day gifts to their pets, spending a total of $681 million in 2016
• Fifty percent of marriage proposals happen on Valentine’s Day • In 2016, American consumers spent $4.5 billion on jewelry for Valentine’s Day. • 34 percent of consumers plan to eat out on February 14, making Valentine’s Day the second busiest day of the year for restaurants.
