           TRIVIA TODAY - Monday, July 21, 2008 
       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 

Greetings Infomaniacs,

I am standing up in my friend's wedding next spring, and 
over the weekend she had us attend a bridal expo with her. 
I was overwhelmed at how many choices there are for flowers, 
cakes, dresses, rings, and on and on. The expo was a good 
way for my friend to get a feel of what she would like, and 
it was fun for the rest of us to taste cake samples and hold 
flower bouquets! 

Since we're on the topic of weddings, here is some fun 
wedding trivia...

                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

In English tradition, Wednesday is considered the "best 
day" to marry, although Monday is for wealth and Tuesday 
is for health. Saturday is considered the unluckiest 
wedding day!


A Swedish bride puts a silver coin from her father and a 
gold coin from her mother in each shoe to ensure that she'll 
never do without. Moroccan women take a milk bath to purify 
themselves before their wedding ceremony. For good luck, 
Egyptian women pinch the bride on her wedding day.


Diamonds set in gold or silver became popular as betrothal 
rings among wealthy Venetians toward the end of the 
fifteenth century. Seventeen tons of gold are made into 
wedding rings each year in the United States!

DOG TAG Medical Alert Storage Device (1 GIG)


Queen Victoria started the Western world's white wedding 
dress trend in 1840 -- before then, brides simply wore their 
best dress.


The tradition of a wedding cake comes from ancient Rome, 
where revelers broke a loaf of bread over a bride's head 
for fertility's sake.


In many cultures around the world -- including Celtic, Hindu 
and Egyptian weddings -- the hands of a bride and groom are 
literally tied together to demonstrate the couple's commit-
ment to each other and their new bond as a married couple 
(giving us the popular phrase "tying the knot").
