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!
