On my 10th anniversary...

...I started wondering about traditional wedding symbols. There is always talk about the silver 25th and the gold 50th. But what about the years prior? I should be able to get something for enduring 10 years, shouldn't I? Well, the traditional wedding symbol is...



...tin and aluminum. I can't believe that there was ever a time when an anniversary gift of tin or aluminum was acceptable. Then again, maybe husbands would appreciate it if it was a 6 pack of aluminum cans filled with beer. Thankfully, my husband went with a more modern anniversary gift this year. Tradition is nice, but jewelry is better.

happy very belated anniversary. i wonder, what back in the day, tin and aluminum was used for to make it gift worthy?

Seeing that picture reminded me of the saying "There's more success in cans than in can'ts". Very appropriate for a lasting marriage!
