This ragged anniversary of two
Who moved for three years in tune
Down the long walks of their vows.
Now their love lies a loss
And Love and his patients roar on a chain;
From every tune or crater
Carrying cloud, Death strikes their house.
Too late in the wrong rain
They come together whom their love parted:
The windows pour into their heart
And the doors burn in their brain.?
(By Dylan Thomas)
Actually, it is turned out to be difficult to find the history of leather wedding as it is considered to be one of the earliest wedding anniversaries. Much more attention is paid to more significant wedding anniversaries.
The earliest known references are to Silver (25th Wedding Anniversary) and Gold (50th Wedding Anniversary). These appear to originate in Middle Europe (Germanic Region) and involved the spouse giving his wife a silver garland when they had been married for 25 years. Some European countries also celebrate Twelve and a half years of marriage using Copper as the Anniversary Symbol.
In 1937 the American National Retail Jeweler Association issued a comprehensive list, which associated a material for each Anniversary year up to the 15th Anniversary and then each fifth year after that up to the 60th Anniversary.
Traditional 3rd wedding anniversary gifts have a theme of Leather.
Contemporary or modern 3rd anniversary gifts have a theme of Crystal or Glass. The flowers associated with the 3rd anniversary are Fuchsia. The Gemstone list shows Crystal associated with this Wedding Anniversary.
A good gift idea for the 3rd wedding anniversary is a cool leather jacket of traditional or fashion color. A husband will appreciate his wife's taste if she chooses as wedding anniversary gift a leather belt, leather driving gloves, leather boots or a leather travel bag.
A wife will be pleased with a pair of expensive elegant gloves or shoes from a famous trademark. A leather cosmetics bag and leather purse are also great wedding anniversary gift ideas.
If you would like to follow modern trend present your partner Swarovski crystal necklace, a crystal vase filed with fresh flowers. Lavish the one love with a crystal window prism, a glass trophy case, new sunglasses or a new set of barware.
Remember that your Wedding Anniversary is a time to celebrate your continued bond with your partner. And if you can't celebrate your anniversary on the exact day then make a point of celebrating as close as possible to your Anniversary.
