What Are You Giving to Your Valentine?

What do you plan to give to your Valentine this year? Each year Americans spend over $3.6 billion on gifts during the Valentine's holiday. Most of the money is spent on a beautifully written card and some roses.

Valentine's Day is second only to Christmas as over 900 million cards are exchanged. The Hallmark Company produced it's first Valentine in 1913 and now offers over 1,300 different Valentine's card.

What about those roses? Did you know that there are over 900 varieties of the rose, and that 60% of the roses grown in the United States come from California? Unfortunately, most of the roses sold during Valentine's Day come from South America.

Don't forget to get to the store before you go home tonight! Just some advice from a friend.
