Bash & Co. Sotheby’s International Realty: Love is all you need

In between the Christmas trees and 4-leaf clovers, sits a day that is either lauded or loathed by the masses. You guessed it – I am talking about Valentine’s Day, which we all know is rapidly approaching. As adults, most people have strong feelings about this February holiday. Gone are the days which we all jubilantly exchanged candy and cards with our classmates! Some may anticipate the day with excitement and affection and others may dread it with feelings of sadness and longing. Even those who choose to celebrate, may feel a sense of worry and obligation to “get it right”. Lots of stress on a day that is meant to bring feelings of love!

You may not know this, but history tells us this date was solidified by Pope Gelasius I in AD 496 to honor the death of St. Valentine of Rome, who died on February 14th AD 269. St. Valentine was a martyr best known for restoring the sight of his jailer’s blind daughter. Talk about an act of love!
