FUN MEAD FACT: HONEYMOON

February 11, 2017

 

 

What does “honeymoon” really mean and where did the term come from?

To numerous cultures including the Welsh, German, Scandinavian, Celts, and even ancient Romans the consumption of mead was associated with weddings and bringing about children after marriage.  Considered an aphrodisiac the idea was that the daily imbibing in mead would increase the fertility and virility of young newlywed wed couples and thus increase the chances of offspring coming sooner than later.  And while the custom of providing newlyweds with mead for a month (one moon cycle) has faded away…the term “honeymoon” remains.
