Holiday Fun

 

Valentine's Day is second to Christmas
as the most celebrated day of the year
in the U.S.

Valentine's Day is the big time of year
for Red Roses.

73% of people who buy flowers for the
holiday are men.


 
Kids age 6-10 exchange more than 650
million cards with their teachers, friends, classmates and family.

The people receiving Valentine's cards
are Teachers, Kids, Moms, Wives and
Sweethearts.

Hallmark makes over 1,330 different
cards for the holiday.

 
Verona, the city where Romeo and Juliet
lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed
to Juliet every Valentine's Day.

Approx $77.43 is spent on Valentine's Day
gifts--give or take a few dollars and cents.

About 3% of pet owners will give their pets
a gift on Valentine's Day.


Conversation hearts were first made by
candy maker NECCO in 1866, at that time
they were called Motto Hearts. I believe
this year there is a shortage of these
but I have seen little Brach's boxes.

More than 35 million heart shaped boxes
of candy will be sold for Valentine's Day.

Men and women prefer  chocolate over
flowers. Chocolate sales represent 75%
or more of Valentine's Day candy purchases.


I took Valentine's Day off...little mental health day for me. Will miss our party but...

Happy Valentine's to All!


Stop back by tomorrow for a
Valentine treat recipe.

  1. Interesting facts.
    When we were kids, we took around homemade heart sugar cookies, and knocked on the door and hid. It was always such fun!!

    Have a Happy Valentine's Day!!

  2. So, the most surprising of these facts are 1) the letters to Juliet! and 2) pets receive Valentines. (I wonder if my dog feels left out?!)

    Happy Valentine's Day, Melinda!

  3. I was surprised too. I hope they know she is no longer here.

    Well, I guess you could get them a little treat.

    Enjoy your day!
