Copper Wedding: a little about history
It is believed that 7 years of married life is quite a serious period. According to ancient Russian traditions, copper symbolizes family well-being and wealth. In ancient Russia, spouses exchanged copper coins, saying: "I thank you for the material well-being in our house."
In addition, on this anniversary, the spouses must have hung a small horseshoe over the door. It does not have to be copper or iron. Some used wooden or decorative copies. They hung the horseshoe with the arms upwards, thereby forming something resembling a bowl. It symbolized wealth.
After strengthening, a piece of parsley or holly was attached to the horseshoe. These herbs help to renew the positive emotions that lovers experienced on their wedding day. After the celebration of the copper wedding, the grass was not removed, since it was believed that they clean the family hearth from the negative, and the house from the evil forces.
In antiquity, it was customary to wear so-called “sounding” clothes to a copper wedding. It was believed that the more ringing jewelry was hung from the belt of a man and the woman’s sundress, the more fun their future life would be. In addition, people believed that the ringing of metal, remotely resembling the ringing of bells, scares away misfortune, hardship and evil spirits from a family.
The children on this day were given coppers: copper coins, which they should always carry around their necks. By tradition, it was also customary to stick small coppers into the chink at the threshold and lay them in the corners of the house in order to attract wealth to it. In some provinces, the peasant women placed copper coins in any flat dishes, covered them with germinated grain, and covered them with a handkerchief, periodically doused them. And while watering, they slandered: "Grains grow, carry wealth. The higher you are, the more deprived you are in the house."
