AUDIO: So Many Holidays!

February 14, 2018

Yes, today is Valentine's Day, so go hug someone you love. It's also Ash Wednesday, National Organ Donor Day and Ferris Wheel Day. That's a whole bunch of stuff to celebrate, and only one tiny day to do it! Best of luck.

Loads of people are giving flowers on this meg-holiday. UPS estimates it will deliver 88 million flowers today. Americans will spend about $2 billion on flowers this year, and people will collectively shell out billions on jewelry as well. Expensive holiday!

While roses are the traditional Vantine's Day gift, turns out a few people in Colorado would prefer a different kind of bud. According to a recent survey, 8% of people in our great state would prefer marijuana to any floral bouquet.

No matter what you get your sweetheart, you're probably doing a lot better than Duncan Robb of England. He followed some of our advice and took his sweetheart on a trip to Northern Ireland to see what he thought was the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It wasn't until they'd arrived in Belfast that they took a closer look at the tickets and noticed they were actually for the Red Hot Chili Pipers, a bagpipe cover band. Nothing says love more loudly than a bunch of bagpipes!
