Welcome to Troy’s Tuesday Tie Trivia. This feature was inspired by an incredible deal I got on ties at a local indoor flea market.
You can read all about it here.
Because today is Groundhog Day, I originally wanted to do a Groundhog Day themed post, but the closest I could come to a Groundhog tie was a Mickey Mouse tie, and although when it comes to rodents one is the same as another, I thought it was still a pretty big stretch.
So, before we look at a tie, I just want to wish everyone a:
I had all sorts of groundhog trivia all ready too, so I guess I need to find a groundhog tie before next February.
Speaking of February, I do have a couple of different Valentines Day ties, including one of the new ties I just got:
Although it doesn't list an artist, this tie was created by Creative Apparel Group Ltd.
And now for a little bit of Valentines Day Trivia:
About 1 billion Valentine's Day cards are exchanged each year. That's the largest seasonal card-sending occasion of the year, next to Christmas.
Consumers will spend an average of $77.43 on Valentine's Day gifts this year.
E-commerce retailers expect to rack up about $650 million in sales of food, candy, flowers, and other Valentine's Day gifts.
Of that amount about $350 million will be for gifts and flowers and another $45 million will be spent on food (including chocolate) and wine.
More than 35 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate will be sold for Valentine's Day.
In the United States, 64 percent of men do not make plans in advance for a romantic Valentine's Day with their sweethearts.
So, do you have plans yet? What are you going to do?
Being a man, I will probably make some kind of plan on February 13th, then rush out and try to make it happen.
I'm open to suggestions.
I will be linking with these blog parties this week:
