Your wedding anniversary. A time for remembrance. A time for celebration. It is a time to look back at the joys and the milestones, and to look ahead to the hopes and dreams of your future together.
But who started celebrating anniversaries? Wikipedia states that the tradition may have begun in Germany when a couple reached their 25th year of marriage, and the wife was presented with a silver wreath by her friends and neighbors. It was to mark the longevity of the couple’s time together. At the 50-year mark, a gold wreath was presented.
This tradition led to the modern-day practice of giving gifts to celebrate various anniversaries. At first only the 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 50th, and 75th were celebrated with specific gifts, but in 1937 the American National Retail Jeweler Association updated the list to include gift-giving for the first 20 anniversaries, as well as every 5th anniversary after that. Now, the most well-known are the 25th (silver), 50th (golden), and 75th (diamond and gold). In addition, the gift associated with the 60th anniversary is the diamond because the celebration of Queen Victoria’s 60 years on the throne was called the Diamond Jubilee. (For a list of anniversary gifts by year see the following: Wedding Anniversary Gift List.)
