In this article, we will talk about an interesting topic, that topic is – When did the honeymoon start?
When you know, you will be surprised that it is not a matter of today, but it was started from ancient times, today it has just got a new incarnation.
When did the honeymoon begin?
Honeymoon is a holiday taken by newlyweds to celebrate their wedding, immediately after their wedding. In this, Honey means sweetness and Moon means a symbol of love.
The term ‘honeymoon’ was first used by Richard Hulot in the 16th century. But some intellectuals say that the word originated in Babylon 4,000 years ago.
Where the married couple drank after the wedding a special kind of sherbet, called honey beer, and during this time both parties were introduced to their new relatives.
And the month in which this marriage was organized was called Honey Month. Which later came to be called honeymoon by Europeans.
However, the practice of being taken out to a tourist destination after the first marriage was very limited. Most of the people used to implement this system at home.
But as soon as the country started getting free from the royals and the country started adopting the system of liberalization, then the economies opened and now the common people also started getting money in abundance.
So it happened that the desires of the people started increasing, and this system came out in a new form. Where if you did not go to places like Shimla, Manali and Switzerland , then it means that you did not celebrate honeymoon properly.
