Happy Valentine's Day! It's a special day for millions of us. In fact, we'll spend $millions today on chocolates, flowers, jewelry and dinner, in that order. Couples and lovers will also go to movies and shows tonight and many will change costumes later - lingerie comes in at #6 on the Valentine's Day expense list.
Here's how the numbers break down this year:
71% of us plan to spend about $135 on Valentine's Day. 77% of men and 67% of women will get their partner a special gift.
Oh, it's also interesting to note, 62% of Canadians think Valentine's Day is a "waste of time and money," but 75% of us will celebrate anyway.
Oh, and even if you're single, you can join the fun. The survey found 29% of single people plan to pamper themselves and 18% plan to buy themselves a gift.
Happy Valentine's Day!
