Violets are blue.

Buy her a Valentine's Day gift.

Or she just may dump you.

That's an original PW poem, but the stat comes from WalletHub.com. Other V-Day numbers?

  • The average amount a couple will spend for Valentine's Day is around $150.
  • Around 14 million engagements will happen on the holiday of love
  • Overall spending related to the holiday will be about $19 billion!

Yep, it's big business, and being from Northern Colorado, we are no strangers to that. Of course, the town of Loveland really goes all out and enjoys some economic positives around the February holiday. Their remailing program is huge. Also the Fire and Ice Festival is great for the town (and us, we'll be there all weekend).
