Wedding Anniversaries

 

 

Wedding anniversary is the anniversary of the day on which wedding has taken place. Since the marriage is a major significant and most sacred event in everybody’s life, the essence of true relationship and the joy of togetherness for the number of years they spent is shared and felt by the way of celebrations. People used to celebrate 25 and 50 years of their marriage days in the medieval times and these wedding anniversaries were called Silver Jubilee and Golden Jubilee celebrations respectively. But of recent times, the tradition has changed. Each year of the marriage day has occupied a greater value and wedding anniversaries are celebrated with different themes and gifts.
