I wanted to post this on valentine's day....but ente memory enney chathichu

While most women consider Valentine’s Day to be a celebration of love
and intimacy, many men consider it nothing more than an artificial
holiday cooked up by the floral and greeting card industries. While the
reality might rest somewhere in between, a few interesting statistics
prove that February 14 is a significant day. However, exactly what
makes it significant may surprise you.

10. Women Spend Half As Much As Men


Although women tend to make a bigger deal about Valentine’s Day than
men, when it comes to money spent, they are only half as committed to
the holiday as their masculine counterparts. Last year, on average,
each American male spent over $150 dollars on his respective love
interest. The average woman, on the other hand, dolled out only 85
bucks.

9. Condom Sales Are Highest on Valentine’s Day

According to condom giant Durex, prophylactic sales are about 25
percent higher than usual on Valentine’s Day. This interesting fact may
help explain the statistics reported in fact ten. The reality is that
men become awfully generous around February 14 and fact number nine
seems to reveal why. EPIC WIN IF U ASK ME

8. March and Pregnancy Tests go Hand in Hand

This interesting fact seems to follow naturally from number nine.
Statistically, at-home pregnancy test sales reach their zenith in the
month following Valentine’s Day as the consequences of all those
romantic couplings are realized.

7. Florists Make A Killing Around Valentine’s Day

It may come as no surprise to learn that florists tend to jack up their
prices around February 14. However, the actual dollar amounts are
eye-popping. The cost of a dozen roses skyrockets as much as 30 percent
around the romantic season reaching as high as $100 when individual
stocks run low.

6. Millions Purchase Valentines for Their Pets

You may think the day of love is only for those in romantic
relationships. However, single people need love too, and when a
suitable human is not available, they turn to the next best thing.
According to several surveys, as many as nine million people purchase
Valentine’s Day presents for their pets each year.

5. Women Don’t Need Men on Valentine’s Day

If you’ve ever seen women comparing Valentine’s Day bouquets at the
office, you know size does matter. However, as far as many women are
concerned, anything is better than nothing. Surprisingly, as much as 15
percent of American women send themselves roses on February 14 to save
face in front of their judging

4. Romance is Only A Tiny Part Valentine’s Day

Although it may seem like the greeting card industry relies on the
promise of sex for much of its sales, romantic encounters have nothing
to do with the majority of their profits. Statistically, most Valentine
money is spent on teachers, followed by children, moms and, finally,
wives and girlfriends.

3. Women Prefer Cards to Flowers

When it comes to Valentines Day, women are relatively miserly compared
to their free-spending husbands and boyfriends. However, they do appear
to rank higher in sentimentality. Of the one billion valentines
purchased every year, females are responsible for over 80 percent of
all sales.

2. Flowers Are A Man’s Best Friend

While women prefer to express their romantic feelings through a
carefully-selected greeting card, men seem to prefer the traditional
means. Husbands and boyfriends buy over seventy percent of all the
flowers bought on Valentine’s Day each year.

1. In Japan, Men Receive More Valentines

Just as mega-jeweler De Beers used clever marketing to cultivated the
traditional presentation of a diamond as an engagement present in the
U.S., Japanese companies have forged a similar campaign to encourage
spending on Valentine’s Day. Except their marketing ploy is aimed at
women. Thanks to a powerful campaign by the Japan’s chocolate industry,
Japanese women are now traditionally expected to purchase chocolate for
their men every Valentine’s Day.
