Happy Valentine's Day & Happy Cream Filled Chocolates Day

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Cream Filled Chocolates Day

How appropriate!!!  On the National Day of Love  to also celebrate National Cream Filled Chocolates Day!!  No one quite knows where or when National Cream Filled Chocolates Day got it's start nor does anyone know who created it but to coin a very famous phrase, "Life is like a box of chocolates:  You never know what you are gonna get" and that can certainly be true if you happen to get a box without a road map!!  

Valentine's Day is big business, in fact it is estimated that loved one's spend in excess of $2 billion on flowers and over 250 million roses are produced just for this holiday alone.  

According to an article  published by ABC News just over half of the people celebrate the holiday.  They spend $4.3 billion on jewelry, over $2 billion on flowers and $1.7 billion on chocolates and to top it off 190 billion greeting cards for a whopping cost of $1 billion.  That is a total of $9 billion on this holiday alone and this doesn't include the other gifts exchanged for Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!
