Ode to Valentine's Day
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.
Today is the day we celebrate LOVE!
Love is the most amazing thing in our lives. It is what makes us human, what makes life worth living. Nothing else truly matters. The size of our homes, bank balances, the beauty of our partner – all those things pale into insignificance when we face the splendor of what it is that makes us tick.
“Love does not make the world go around – it simply makes the ride worthwhile”.
We hope you enjoy your day, hug the ones you love and enjoy these pieces of art made by our artists!
