The Economics of Valentine's Day

Updated: Sep 22, 2019



Came across this report today.


Spare a thought for UPS drivers, who will deliver some 88 million flowers this Valentine’s Day.


Americans will spend $2 billion on flowers alone, according to The National Retail Federation, and $19.6 billion in total — mostly on jewelry and a romantic evening out.


The average American will spend $143.56, about $7 more than last year.


Sad to say, I came in a little under average!
