This year the National Retail Federation is predicting that Americans will spend nearly $20 billion on Valentine’s Day treats for their nearest and dearest.

Just to add some perspective, the combined U.S. spending for the Super Bowl this past Sunday amounted to about $15 billion.

Fifteen billion is obviously a hefty chunk of change, but it still doesn’t match up to the greeting card holiday most Americans love to hate.
