Fact of the Day
Today's connotation of a honeymoon as marriage consummation is a bit skewed or has simply evolved from what history tells us it originated as. Norse folklore tells us that the groom would traditionally commandeer his spouse to be after the wedding and run off to seclusion for a month [source]. The honey part comes from the ceremonial mead drinking that went on during the retreat to symbolize the sweetness of newly married love. Moon is used to calculate the time; 1 moon's time is one month. The moon also plays a more significant role in respect to the future of a marriage. It was understood that the joyous love of the beginnings of marriages weans away as soon as it arrives like the tides controlled by lunar gravitational forces [source].
