You would call me a fool and say the answer to the question is taste enhancement but that is not the origin of the lemon besides the fish. Before people thought about consequences all the time, not so anymore because our security is always handled by someone else. Earlier in time, about six hundred years ago, people weren’t protected by others so they had to do it themselves. Some people swallowed bones of the fish by accident and it was a myth that lemon juice would help you remove the bone. At it was true, sucking on a lemon causes the throat muscles to contort, therefor helping to dislodge any stuck bone.
We have engagement rings and wedding rings, the two have different purposes. Some big institutes believe it was a tradition invented by the Barbarians. They were thought to be using it to use it to lure their captors into marrying them. Others give the credit of this custom to the Romans, who gave the bride a key which looked like a circle, which would signify that half her husband’s wealth belongs to her. Another belief is that the Egyptians created this custom, because they lived circular things, they thought it meant eternal life so they used it in weddings.
The rings were only made in metal before but now they have come to take different shapes and forms. The origin is thought to be in the continent of Europe but it has spread around the world.
Ever been to a marriage, if so you probably have seen the bride having a transparent veil on covering her face. Where does this tradition of covering up the face come from? It has some deep history behind it and I will tell it to you.
Although veils for women are often associated to the Muslim religion, it comes even further back before the religion was ever invented by Mohammed. It was invented at least three thousand years before Mohammed’s religious revolution in the middle east. Outside of the middle east the veil had became transparent and translucent. It was to remind the woman that she was beginning a new life, a life of submission toward her husband. The tradition was invented in 400 bc or something near that date and it predates the wedding dress by several centuries.
