Being engaged is so exciting, especially for us ladies (I might be a little biased). Planning for a wedding is exciting, stressful, fun, exhausting and exhilarating. It’s a lot more than that too, but for the sake of moving on to the point of this article, I will stop with the adjectives.
The etymology of the word comes from the Old English “hony moone.” Hony, a reference to honey, refers to the “indefinite period of tenderness and pleasure experienced by a newly wed couple,” and how sweet the new marriage is. Moone, meanwhile, refers to the fleeting amount of time that sweetness would last. While honeymoon has a positive connotation today, it was first used as a term to warn newlyweds about waning love.
“Honeymoon,” also has origins that date back to the fifth century “was the month after a wedding, when the bride’s father would give the groom all the mead he wanted. Mead is a honey beer while the Babylon calendar was a lunar calendar. The Babylonians started calling the month the “honey month” but we now call it a “honeymoon” (—Rashmi Jain, Greater Noida). I quite doubt that this tradition of serving “beer” to the groom for a month continues in most families, but the aspect of enjoying travel with your new spouse certainly does. Thus, the honeymoon.
