Valentine’s Day turned out to be a scary experience for an elderly couple when they woke up to find a four-feet macajuel in their bedroom ceiling yesterday.
Robin Nagessar, 73, and his wife Sumintra, 61, remained outside their home for about four hours until the snake was captured by senior Game Warden Steve Seepersad.
Recalling the scary encounter, Nagessar said he got up around 3 am because his wife had to go out.
“I put on my television and make up my bed because my wife had to go out early this morning,” he said.
Where is the love?
Valentine's Day spending is expected to drop 7.6% this year to $18.2 billion from last year's $19.7 billion, according to the latest annual survey form the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights and Analytics in the United States.
It turns out that 9% fewer people plan on celebrating the occasion.
“Valentine’s Day continues to be a popular gift-giving occasion even if consumers are being more frugal this year,” NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said.
