The Marketing Champ
Who ever decided to start celebrating the martyr St. Valentine and turn it into a lovers holiday was a marketing genius. At first it was suppose to be for romantic lovers now everyone is a valentine.
Lovers spend 190 million on cards alone, add now friends, family members, coworkers and it equals 1 billion cards a year. The average spending per person on Valentine's day is now 131 dollars per person. I'm surprised the feds haven't turned it into a holiday and moved it to the 2nd Monday in February.
Oh wait we already have a holiday we moved to a Monday in February, Presidents day but nobody has marketed it ,YET........
