oak wedding

Eachan­niver­sary has its own amaz­ing name, which appeared for a rea­son. It is the 80th anniver­sary of liv­ing togeth­er that is usu­al­ly called an oak wed­ding, because the oak sym­bol­izes strength and longevi­ty. So a fam­i­ly with such expe­ri­ence has acquired strong, “oak” rela­tion­ships, proven by the joys and sor­rows of many decades.

The joint life of the spous­es grows stronger every year, there­fore, from the names ofan­niver­saries, one can under­stand whether this is a strong fam­i­ly or just a union that is gain­ing strength. No won­der the first anniver­saries of life togeth­er are called chintz, gauze, paper wed­dings. Rela­tions in fam­i­lies with a short expe­ri­ence of liv­ing togeth­er are com­plete­ly frag­ile, spous­es under­go many dif­fi­cul­ties, look close­ly, get used to the habits of their half, and not every­one has the strength and patience to go hand in hand with the cho­sen one. There­fore, the union is eas­i­ly torn apart like gauze or paper.

On the anniver­sary of an oak wed­ding, a hus­band and wife under­stand each oth­er at a glance, they know that the oth­er half will always under­stand and sup­port. The union of these peo­ple has grown so strong that they will with­stand any hard­ships and defeats like a peren­ni­al oak tree, and it is almost impos­si­ble to break their fam­i­ly.

Ana­lyz­ing how many years the spous­es who cel­e­brate an oakhave lived togeth­er, we can safe­ly assume that they have a large fam­i­ly and a pedi­gree com­pa­ra­ble to a mighty oak. After all, over 80 years of mar­riage, the spous­es prob­a­bly became great-grand­par­ents, and pos­si­bly have great-great-grand­chil­dren.

An oakis cel­e­brat­ed by cen­te­nar­i­ans, these are peo­ple who are wise by expe­ri­ence, who have expe­ri­enced a lot in their lives, and the fam­i­ly remains the main val­ue for them. The most pleas­ant gift for them will be for the whole fam­i­ly to get togeth­er, this is a rare event when 4–5 gen­er­a­tions meet, because if chil­dren or grand­chil­dren have gone to dif­fer­ent cities and coun­tries, then many great-grand­chil­dren can only meet for the first time.

When is the oakcelebrated?

The oakis cel­e­brat­ed on the 80th anniver­sary of mar­riage, there­fore the “new­ly­weds” are already about a hun­dred years old. Rare cou­ples live to such an age, so it is cus­tom­ary to cel­e­brate such a sig­nif­i­cant event in a chic way.

Giv­en the ven­er­a­ble age of the spous­es and their chil­dren, it is bet­ter to arrange not a noisy hol­i­day, but a mag­nif­i­cent solemn feast with the fam­i­ly. Sure­ly the next of kin will arrive more than a dozen, so you need to plan a place for a feast in advance.

On aan­niver­sary, it is appro­pri­ate to give hand­made oak fig­urines or carved oak cas­kets, oak rosaries. An orig­i­nal gift will be a cus­tom-made paint­ing, in which the artist will depict a young cou­ple under an oak, and draw faces and images from pho­tographs that have sur­vived from the­of the young.

An excel­lent gift would be a fam­i­ly tree, which is painstak­ing­ly com­piled in more than one week. Anniver­saries will tell inter­est­ing sto­ries for some fam­i­ly mem­bers, but they will be able to learn a lot about the younger gen­er­a­tion from their grand­chil­dren or great-grand­chil­dren.

An inter­est­ing tra­di­tion is to plant an oak on this day, which will sym­bol­ize the longevi­ty and strength of the union, and will serve as an exam­ple for oth­er gen­er­a­tions. The tree can be plant­ed in the gar­den or, in agree­ment with the local author­i­ties, in the city park. An oakis a rare event, and in a small town, a mar­ried cou­ple who lived to see such an anniver­sary is usu­al­ly con­grat­u­lat­ed by both the may­or and the towns­peo­ple, so it is very appro­pri­ate to plant an oak in the city gar­den.
