A wedding anniversary is always a pleasant experience. Spouses who have lived together for 28 years deserve respect for their love and wisdom in preserving the family. The 28th anniversary is popularly called the Nickel wedding.
Nickel wedding traditions
It is not customary to celebrate a nickel wedding. It is believed that during this period the spouses are going through quite serious and difficult trials in family life. According to psychologists, these difficulties do not depend on the age of the couple, but on the number of years lived. But it is during this period that the spouses are given the opportunity to live "for themselves", to devote time to the realization of unfulfilled dreams.
Now they can fall in love with their soul mate again, show tenderness and affection for each other.
There is also a popular belief that a couple on their twenty-eighth wedding anniversary should not forget about each other and give "shine" to the relationship. Otherwise, their family life is threatened with the same darkening as nickel metal. Nickel is magnetic, so spouses celebrating their 28th anniversary should be drawn to each other. Fortunately, there is enough time for this, since the children, most likely, have already grown up, and the grandchildren do not take up so much time.
How to Prepare for a Nickel Wedding
Since the 28th anniversary is not celebrated, there is no need to arrange a fancy holiday. However, if the spouses decide to set the table, there is nothing reprehensible in this. Due to the fact that the date is "not round", it is best to celebrate it in a narrow circle of family and friends. Well, if a couple decides to devote this day to each other, it will also be a good option for this wonderful event.
In this case, you can go to the theater or watch your favorite movie, and then arrange a romantic dinner by candlelight.
Gifts on this day can be given of a completely different nature. It all depends on the desire of the person giving the gift, but the most themed items will be items made of nickel. Household appliances, bedding, accessories will always complement the list of prospective gifts. Well, and, of course, no celebration is complete without a bouquet of flowers and a cake with a themed inscription. It is not customary to only give wood and paper items on this day. Hand-made gifts will also be relevant. They will always express the warmth of the hands of the creator.
Children can present as a gift a voucher for two to the sea or to a sanatorium. Thus, they will delight parents and take care of their health.
The most important thing on this day is to express love and joy to the heroes of the occasion. After all, people who have created a family and have kept warmth to a friend for a friend over the course of 28 years are worthy of all praise and admiration.
