It's the economy of a small country.

It's the economy of a small country.

The amount of money spent in association with Valentine's Day. America will spend $15.7 billion this year, up a healthy 11% from last year. The average consumer shells out $116.21 for merchandise. And the average 25-34 year old is the biggest spender, spending $190.

The holiday is expected to generate $3.5 billion in jewelry sales, $3.4 billion in dining out, $1.7 billion on flowers, $1.6 billion on clothing, $1.5 billion on candy, and $1.1 billion on greeting cards. The National Retail Federation reports cards continue to be the main way people express their love, 52% buy one, making Valentine's Day the 2nd biggest card giving day of the year.

Pretty cynical for a guy in a red sweater today!

And the #1 answer in Woman's Day magazine when they asked "What do you want most this Valentine's Day?", was a hand written love letter!

Roses are red, Violets are blue,
What would I ever do, without you!
