Valentine’s Day seems to be a very profitable day!

I think people spend a lot because they associate a lot of emotion to this day. Why?

Why? Because people buy using emotion and justify their purchases with logic.

So, this means, Men become emotional during Valentine’s because they tend to spend more. Haha!
