Valentine’s Day doesn’t just mean overpriced roses and awkward restaurant dinner dates, it also comes with some surprising superstitions, too.
According to folklore (well, a loose Google search), come February the 14th if a woman sees a squirrel, she’s destined to marry a cheapskate. Slice open an apple on the day and the number of seeds inside will apparently predict the number of children you’re going to have. Sure, red roses mean love, but get a yellow bunch and that means the giver is the devious, jealous type.
Another superstition you may not be aware of is from The Association For Data Driven Marketing & Advertising (ADMA). Ok, not so much a superstition, but for lovers (of marketing) all the same.
ADMA host the marketing industry’s pre-eminent conference annually in the guise of its Global Forum. And it’s back again for 2020, this time at ICC Sydney over two days from the 31st of March.
