Our Last Doodle will be a Kiss ! No not the Band (telling my age)
A Kiss can Mean many things for many people –
In some situations, a kiss is a ritual, formal or symbolic gesture indicating devotion, respect, or sacrament. The word came from Old English cyssan (“to kiss“), in turn from coss (“a kiss“).
Some anthropologists have suggested that the Greeks learned about erotic kissing from the Indians when Alexander the Great invaded India in 326 BC. However, this need not mean that kissing originated in India, or indeed that it does not predate the oral roots of the Vedic texts.
In a Wedding Ceremony It comes After I pronounce you man and wife.
Originally, it was assumed that the bride and groom had not kissed before the wedding so this would traditionally be their first kiss, and in Roman times kissing was a legal bond that sealed all contracts. However, though many ceremonies do include this line, the kiss is not traditionally a part of the religious ceremony.But now enjoyable part that seals the marriage between two people.

Wait, wait, wait…in Roman times kissing was a legal bond that sealed ALL contracts?
You mean if your average Roman went down to the horse dealership and bought a Pinto, he’d have to smooch with the dealer to finalize the transfer of ownership? What if the dealer had just finished some very garlicky pasta?
I’ve really enjoyed all these bits of history on weddings, even though my wedding is long past and was a simple JP ceremony (about as romantic as…well, buying a Pinto) Still, that ceremony lasted us 18 years, so I guess in the long run, it’s what comes after the wedding day that really matters.
Thank you for sharing.
Thanks -mine is July 5th and 20 years. Very simple but in the same church my parents were married 60plus years ago.
