Seven Years of Marriage - Copper Wedding
Seven years of married life - a lot or a little? Most likely, each family couple will answer this question in different ways. Some with enthusiasm and a burning eye will say that they did not notice how these happy years passed, and it seems to them that only yesterday Mendelssohn's march sounded in their honor. Others will look away and bitterly sigh. But now it will not be about those unfortunate spouses whose marriage was a mistake. I want to talk about the lucky ones, for whom a bridal wedding is a joyful and solemn event.
It should be noted that loving people have long tried to celebrate their small holidays - the first meeting, the first kiss, the first trembling declaration of love. And, of course, marriage is the most important day in the history of any family.
Unlike the first anniversaries, a bridal wedding, also called woolen, is a special holiday, incomparable. In ancient times, it was customary to wear "ringing" clothes to celebrate the 7th anniversary of a joint life.
His clothes were decorated with a belt with a large number of metal objects, daggers and knives, hanging from him, and his beloved wife's sundress was decorated with coins, various plates of metal. It was believed that the ringing of metal will attract a cheerful and joyful life, take away from the family misfortune and evil spirits, because this bell sounded a bit like a bell.
Why is this holiday called “copper wedding”? As you know, copper is a good conductor of electricity and heat, a soft and ductile metal.People who have lived in marriage for seven years already have learned to appreciate and cherish the warmth of the family hearth, the metal can not be torn like paper or cloth symbolizing the early years of family life, but it can be melted down and given it a different shape.
Spouses need to continue working on their relationships so that over time they turn into more and more valuable metals - silver and gold.
This holiday is also called a woolen wedding. Wool is a natural, natural material that gives warmth and tenderness. During the seven years of marriage, the reflections of feelings warm not only the loving hearts, but also the born children. But it's no secret that sometimes wool can prick and cause some inconvenience.
Modern housewives know that it is enough to rinse the wool in a special tool, and it will become soft and fluffy. If the couple will give each other more love and attention, then they will never feel the woolen spines.
Copper wedding is a certain stage of family relationships, when all-consuming love and passion grow into something more - the warmth of the family hearth, the confidence in the partner and in the future.
If you are invited to a celebration, you need to think carefully about what you will come to the perpetrators of the celebration. What to give for a bridal wedding? Present can be any souvenirs made of copper or wool - interior items, dishes, cutlery.
Beautiful, warm and tender holiday - a copper wedding. Congratulations from relatives and friends should be original, but the main thing is that they should be sincere and cordial.
