Wedding Anniversary Themes and Gifts
Last Sunday, Macrine and I celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary. I was curious on the theme and traditional/modern gifts for the 60 years anniversary. So I did an Internet Search. I found out from the Hall Mark list, that both traditional and modern gift is the Diamond ( yellow). The list ends at 60 years. However the list from Wikipedia ends at 90 years. Do you know of anyone celebrating or had celebrated a 90 years Wedding Anniversary? I have heard of a couple who had celebrated a 70-years wedding anniversary but not a 90 years.
The following is the list from Hall Mark
Modern: Desk Sets
Modern: Diamond Jewelry
Modern: Fashion Jewelry
Traditional/Modern: Gold Jewelry
Theme: Home Improvement
Theme: Faith and Hope
List from Wikipedia at the 60th and after to the 90th:
Do you know of any couple who had celebrated their 90th Wedding Anniversary?
