Hiring Promotional Staff for Valentine’s Day Events
It is the day of romance, love and proposals and one that your brand may decide is perfect for leveraging its commercial value. Hiring promotional staff for Valentine’s day events is increasingly common but you need to make sure you hire the right people.
The origins of Valentine’s day
A Roman festival, it was celebrated originally in mid-February with the promise of spring and new life on the doorstep. It was a festival that celebrated fertility although the pairing off of women with men via a lottery system is something we wouldn’t be comfortable with today.
The same could be said for Pope Gelasius 1 who replaced the festival of Lupercalia as it was called with St Valentine’s day.
In a leap year, it is an Irish tradition for women to propose marriage. But there was a catch – if the proposal was refused, the man had to by the lady a silk gown or by the mid-20th century, a fur coat! With 2020 being a leap year, and then every four years, come 29th February, there could be another reason for your brand to hire promotional staff for a similar event to that of Valentine’s day.
