Crystal- how many years of marriage and what is customary to give?

Since ancient times, every year for the date of the­came up with its own name. The 15-year mile­stone of liv­ing togeth­er is called the “crys­tal wed­ding”, and this choice is not acci­den­tal. Crys­tal was con­sid­ered a tal­is­man against the evil eye, a sym­bol of beau­ti­ful, pure rela­tion­ships between lov­ing peo­ple. It is dif­fi­cult to break it, so this stone is also called the key to strong rela­tion­ships.


The first ques­tion that a cou­ple of friends ask is: a crys­tal- how many years of mar­riage? A lot, as many as 15, it is not in vain that if a cou­ple has lived for so many years in har­mo­ny, then their rela­tion­ship is as strong as this semi-pre­cious stone. A crys­tal­is a very impor­tant mile­stone in fam­i­ly life, it is also called a glass wed­ding. It is believed that the tra­di­tion of namin­gan­niver­saries orig­i­nat­ed in Ger­many, where the 15th anniver­sary is called a pur­ple wed­ding. In some coun­tries, this date is called a rag wed­ding, but the “crys­tal wed­ding” is more sym­bol­ic.

How to celebrate a crystal wedding?

The peo­ple have pre­served the cus­tom of cel­e­brat­ing this hol­i­day with a large num­ber of guests. Astrologers, on the oth­er hand, rec­om­mend gath­er­ing only with the fam­i­ly cir­cle, since Sat­urn is respon­si­ble for this date, which does not like it very much when his per­son­al space is vio­lat­ed. It is not for­bid­den to call friends, it is oblig­a­tory — those who were present at the wed­ding.

Crys­tal­tra­di­tions have more ancient ones:

  • You need to break the old mir­rors to get rid of the neg­a­tiv­i­ty that this glass has absorbed over the years.
  • Guests should put only crys­tal glass­es and glass­ware on the table.
  • Young anniver­saries should break their wine glass­es at the end of the hol­i­day in order to destroy all mis­un­der­stand­ings and prob­lems with them, and the new rela­tion­ship was clean as glass.

Crystal- signs

The most ancient belief that a glass crys­tal­has pre­served is that guests must leave if one of the guests breaks a piece of uten­sil. There are some signs for a young cou­ple:

  1. All chipped or cracked dish­es should be thrown away, and a new one should be bought on the day of the anniver­sary.
  2. On the day of the 15thanniversary, you need to make a large pur­chase of glass or crys­tal. If funds do not allow, you can buy a small but sym­bol­ic thing.
  3. Wash­ing togeth­er in the morn­ing, this rit­u­al of cleans­ing the fam­i­ly will keep the cou­ple for years to come.

In recent years, the tra­di­tion of hand­ing over the hearth to a crys­tal­has become pop­u­lar. The moth­ers of a young cou­ple bring their lit can­dles to the anniver­saries, as a sym­bol of the uni­ty of two fam­i­lies, the spous­es light their can­dle from them. The cer­e­mo­ny is accom­pa­nied by beau­ti­ful music and the wish­es of the par­ents. It is best for a cou­ple to buy a can­dle­stick in the form of a house for this pur­pose, the light burn­ing in the win­dows will look beau­ti­ful and sym­bol­ic. The can­dle is not blown out until the guests leave, the fam­i­ly should keep it as a sym­bol of love. Then they light it for anniver­saries, birth­days.
