Honeymoon. . . A Bit of Romantic History!

Filed under: Honeymoons — Larry James @ 7:00 am

honeymoonbedHoney wine, more commonly called Mead was the original wine in history. Mead was being enjoyed before grapes were cultivated. Since honey wine has so much history there are many stories attached to it.

The Norsemen and Vikings are well known for their drinking of Mead but when the English were introduced to honey wine, they called it a “Love Potion.”

It was an English tradition that a bride and groom drink honey wine from “moon to moon” (one month) in order to guarantee fertility in their marriage. That is how the word “Honeymoon” originated.

Today, the honeymoon is pretty much just an excuse for a vacation and a time for the newlyweds to be alone, which in some cases could have the same “fertile” result. ūüėČ

However, unless you are lucky, the honeymoon usually doesn’t last a month.
