Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas
Flcyclist on 07/10/2008
|The tradition of giving a specific gift on a specific anniversary dates back to the Middle Ages. According to research, the custom of associating silver with the 25th wedding anniversary and gold with the 50th wedding anniversary appears to have originated in the Germanic region of Middle Europe. The silver anniversary included a husband giving his wife a silver garland when they had been married 25 years. The custom of celebrating what was once referred to as the "anniversary wedding" can be traced back to the Victorian era ... Although no one is certain how the traditional list of symbolic anniversary gifts originated, it is likely that the Victorians made the custom popular ... Early anniversary symbolism included only a few of the anniversaries we recognize today, and prior to 1937, only the 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 50th, and 75th anniversary had a material associated with it.|
