wedding anniversaries

 

Traditionally, each wedding anniversary is celebrated with a gift made from a different material. While there are many lists of gifts for particular wedding anniversaries, here is a list of traditional ones: First - Paper; Second - Cotton; Third - Leather; Fourth - Fruit/Flowers; Fifth - Wood; Sixth - Candy/Iron; Seventh - Wool/Copper; Eighth - Bronze/Pottery; Ninth - Pottery/Willow; Tenth - Tin/Aluminum; Eleventh - Steel; Twelfth - Silk/Linen; Thirteenth - Lace; Fourteenth - Ivory; Fifteenth - Crystal; Twentieth - China; Twenty-Fifth - Silver; Thirtieth - Pearl; Thirty-Fifth - Coral; Fortieth - Ruby; Forty-Fifth - Sapphire; Fiftieth - Gold; Fifty-fifth - Emerald; Sixtieth - Diamond; Seventieth - Platinum. It isn't clear when the traditional list came into existence; it probably evolved over time. Calling years 25 and 50 'Silver' and 'Gold' may have originated in medieval Europe, where wives were given a silver wreath to celebrate their twenty-fifth year of marriage and a gol d wreath for their fiftieth anniversary
