Tin wedding traditions
In Russia, for this holiday, the wife put on jewelry from tin plates with intricate patterns similar to coinage. On the night before this anniversary, the couple left a tin plate on the floor in the stable. If the horse steps on the plate, leaving an imprint in the form of a horseshoe, then the life of the spouses will be happy and long. This tin plate with a horseshoe was then stored in the house as a symbol of happiness and prosperity..
There was another custom regarding tin weddings. A bucket filled with alcohol was put out of the gate, a bucket and a tin mug were left nearby. All the people passing by drank from the ladle for the spouses' health and happiness, and threw copper coins into the mug - symbols of wealth in the house.
In the old days, guests brought a bucket of kvass as a gift to their spouses. This gift can be explained as follows: 8-year-old spouses “swear” in family everyday life and problems, and now it's time to drink this leaven, so that life together does not “turn sour” at all.
