What is the wedding called
So they call it in France, and in the Netherlands, and in England, and in Germany. But why porcelain?
There are several explanations for this name:
- As you know, porcelain is very noble, elegant, beautiful, and at the same time brittle material. And the relationship of spouses after 20 years of living together are full of love, respect and understanding, but fragile and tender. The symbol of the 20th anniversary of the wedding reminds the couple that happiness is fragile and must be protected in 10 and 20 years.
- The second version of the origin of the wedding anniversary name is associated with China - the birthplace of porcelain. In ancient times, Chinese porcelain is very much appreciated. It was expensive hand-made, decorated with hand-painted. And the relationship of spouses in 20 years have become simply priceless.
