More than Half of the People On This Planet Think Valentine’s Day Is Too Commercialized

Valentine’s Day is the one day a year when everyone can take their special someone by the hand, look them in the eye, and say, “I’ve set a price on our love, and here it is, in gift form.”

Valentine’s Day is a commercial holiday.  And we all know it.  According to a new global survey, more than HALF of the people in the world think Valentine’s Day is too commercialized.

(No, not every country was surveyed.  I have a feeling the people in Egypt have other things on their mind besides, “Hello?  Yes, sure I have time to take a survey.  Yeah.  It is too commercialized.  You have a great day too.”)

52% of people overall said the holiday is too commercial and most of them will protest by not spending any money on it.

Germans are the most likely to rebel against Valentine’s Day, at 74%.  They’re followed by Australians at 71% and Japanese at 69%.

Americans are the most likely to celebrate it, at 58%.  The Chinese are second-most likely, at 50%.

Flowers are the most popular Valentine’s Day gift worldwide, but in the U.S., greeting cards are more popular.
