All you husbands out there. Remember to get a card, flowers, candy, whatever or you'll be in trouble! Here are some Valentine's Day statistics for you to ponder:
1 in 2 Americans plan to celebrated Valentine's Day
Americans will spend a total of 19.7 billion.
The average American spends $166.
25-34 year olds spend the most money.
35% of Valentine's Day shopping takes place at a department store; specialty store=19%; florist=20%.
