EDISON, N.J., Jan. 24 (UPI) — The New Jersey-based Zebra Pen Corp. said its survey indicates Valentine’s Day revelers enjoy eating out, handwritten notes and home-cooked meals.
The company said the survey of 2,541 U.S. adults, conducted online Jan. 5-9 by Harris Interactive, found 57 percent of respondents were looking forward to going out to a nice restaurant for a Valentine’s Day meal, while 44 percent said they are hoping to receive a handwritten note from their partner and 38 percent said they are planning to partake in a romantic home-cooked meal.
Zebra said 34 percent of males in the survey said Katy Perry is the female singer they’d most like to receive a love note from, followed by 29 percent for Taylor Swift, 21 percent for Beyonce, 9 percent for Lady Gaga and 6 percent for Adele.
Among the females in the survey, 45 percent said they would most enjoy a love note from Keith Urban, 24 percent said Bruno Mars, 19 percent picked Steven Tyler, 6 percent chose Jay-Z and 5 percent picked Justin Bieber.
Harris said the survey was not based on a probability sample and therefore has no calculable margin of error.
