Celebrating St Valentine’s Day

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

The celebration of St Valentine’s Day can be traced to the ancient Roman holiday of the Lupercal.  Celebrated at the ides of February, Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.

It is believed that in 498 AD Pope Gelasius declared February 14 St Valentine’s Day in an effort to “Christianize” the pagan festival.  Valentine was a priest who had served during the third century in Rome.  When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret.

Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages, though written Valentine’s didn’t begin to appear until after 1400. The oldest known valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt.  Several years later, it is believed that King Henry V hired a writer named John Lydgate to compose a valentine note to Catherine of Valois.

The most notorious St Valentine’s Day was 1929 when 6 people associated with Bugs Moran and 1 bystander were gunned down by members of Al Capone’s gang dressed as policemen.  Bugs Moran himself was on his way to the garage where the “massacre” occurred when he saw the “policemen” enter and managed to escape.

Today about 1 billion Valentine’s Day Cards, 110 million roses, mostly red, and 36 million boxes of chocolates are sold each year.  Those in the know, however, will rent a Top Hat Photo Booth for a truly memorable holiday.

Get your Green Screen On!

Woh woh woh, are you telling me you guys have advanced Green Screen Technology INSIDE your photo booths? That is correct good sir/madam!

Using our high quality Canon DSLR cameras and powerful photo booth software, we can now put any background you like behind your guests as they take pictures! Are you looking to have a scuba diving themed event? A party in space? Want to be on the cover of your favorite magazine? The sky is the limit with this incredible feature – available for only $200! We are the ONLY photo booth company to offer this feature inside our sleek booths, so what are you waiting for??

This is the perfect way to get your clients hands on (or face on) your product or new service! Think about it – they go in to a custom branded photo booth, with exterior panels designed specifically for your product launch or event. Then inside they see your custom on-screen logo and information, then when they go to take their pictures, the backgrounds are tailored exactly to make that impression you need! They can be using a new-fangled can opener or cruising the Nile on your new kayak, whatever you want! Then when the pictures are done, they have an instant keepsake they can put right on the fridge with your information right there on the strip. Compare that to handing out a coupon, an e-mail blast, or even a commercial – seeing themselves in a picture with the product provides the best product/name recognition period. So once again, what are you waiting for?
