Wedding Anniversary Traditions – Traditional and Modern

Filed in Gather Family Essential by on March 17, 2009 0 Comments

The tradition of giving a specific gift on a specific anniversary dates back to the Middle Ages.  Although my husband and I have never really followed these traditions, or any others for that matter.  I'm really hoping he follows the "modern" tradition for our 10th anniversary which is this upcoming Friday.  :)
