Fun facts about Valentine Day's from the US Greeting Card Assocation:

  • With an estimated 190 million cards to be exchaged, it's the second biggest card occasion after Christmas.
  • 1 billion "classroom valentines" will be opened at schools; accordingly, teachers usually get the more valentines than people in other professions.
  • Valentine's is the largest e-card sending occasion.
  • A quarter of Valentine's cards are humorous (people under 35 are usually the ones who buy those); interestingly, 45% of women will buy humorous cards for their sweeties while only 34% of men will do so.
  • America's first Valentine's cards were sent during the Revolutionary War.

Of course, the Empire State Building will be red, pink and white tonight.
