Brits annoyed with consumerism of Valentine’s Day

Brits annoyed with consumerism of Valentine's Day<br />

Brits are fed up with the consumerism and money concerns that have invaded Valentine’s Day, a day that should be about celebrating love.

Research by moneysupermarket.com found nearly a fifth (17%) of Brits are planning not to bother with Valentine’s Day because they don’t like the idea of it.

“The anti-Valentine vibe is definitely in the air this year,” said Mike Wilson, moneysupermarket.com spokesperson.

Many of those questioned by moneysupermarket.com are planning to save money on Valentine’s cards by sending a text, email or Facebook message instead.

Sixteen percent of those planning to send a Valentine’s message this year said they’re likely to do so using cheap, hi-tech means rather than a traditional card.

“The days of the traditional Valentine’s card may be numbered,” Wilson said.

“Sending a text, email or Facebook message makes for an easy way to tell someone you like them.”
