This Valentine’s Day Is All About Protecting What You Love Friday Feb 07, 2020

Happy Valentine’s Day! There’s no other holiday quite like Valentine’s  Day. Often touted as the “love holiday”, this special day is about celebrating the people and things we love and value the most. Do you own a fine art collection? Are you a wine or art connoisseur? Then when you need a professional company to handle your most valuable artifacts, Advance Relocation Systems is the place to call. 

Valentine’s Day, a.k.a St. Valentine’s Day, is a day for sharing and spreading love, not just to romantic partners, but to anyone with whom you have a love-based relationship (parents, siblings, friends, etc). The holiday has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, held in mid-February. The festival, which celebrated the coming of spring, included fertility rites and the pairing off of women with men by lottery. At the end of the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I replaced Lupercalia with St. Valentine’s Day. It came to be celebrated as a day of romance from about the 14th century (britannica.com). In this the 21st century, Valentine’s Day has evolved from just being about celebrating relationships, to being a day where we take a moment to identify the things that mean the most to us and showing our appreciation for them. 

At Advance Relocation Systems, we understand how important the items our customers call us to relocate are to them.
