    The Origination of Honeymoon

    The origin of the term "Honeymoon" is something of a mystery, but according to folklore, it stems from marriage practices of days long before wedding ceremonies ever existed. Instead of having a public marriage rite, a man would very often simply abduct his chosen bride, and would go into hiding with her for a period of time, until her (possibly enraged) relatives stopped looking for them. While in hiding the newlywed couple would supposedly drink a special type of wine made from honey. The period of hiding traditionally lasted for a month, enough time for the moon to go through all its phases; hence, the name honeymoon. Today, many couples still keep their honeymoon plans a secret.
