It’s right around the corner – the dreaded day made up of stress and anxiety. No, we’re not talking Tax Day, we’re talking about Valentine’s Day. Whether it’s for chocolates, roses and/or dinner reservations, we spend around $149 on average for this day. In fact, each year Americans shell out about $20 billion pouring on the “love” for their beloved valentines.
The origins of this heartfelt holiday date back to ancient Rome. From February 13 to 15 (and you thought one day was pressure filled), the Romans would celebrate the feast of Lupercalia to avert evil spirits and purify the city, releasing health and fertility. A bit more elaborate than a greeting card, wouldn’t you say?
