Hallmark Loves You This Valentine’s Day

It’s that time of the year again folks. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Better get your wallets out because this year the average American plans to spend $74.12 on a spouse or significant other to celebrate this wonderful made-up holiday, which is up 8.5 percent over last year’s $116.21.

This means people will be spending an estimated $1.8 billion on flowers, $1.5 billion on candy, $1.4 billion on clothing and $1.1 billion on gift cards.

I’ll just take the cash. Thank you honey!
