One of many surveys available on the Valentine’s Day Holiday shows the majority of Americans expect to celebrate the big day in some form or fashion.

A total of 78 percent of survey respondents expect to celebrate this year, while 12 percent said maybe and 10 percent said they will not be celebrating.

A total of 58 percent of women plan to celebrate versus 42 percent of men.

Nearly a third of Americans are spending less than $50 on their significant others this Valentine’s Day.  A total of 28 percent will spend between $50-$99, and 20 percent will spend between $100-$199.  About 33 percent will splurge on a date night.

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14.   According to Wikipedia, originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.
