      Some people are single, some are married. But when a bride  gets married, she wants to have good luck.

      So a special tradition started in Britain in 1883. It recommended the bride wore  these objects on her wedding day:

Something old

      Because the old object connects the bride to her family and her past.

Something new

      Because the new object represents her new life.


Something borrowed

      Because the item borrowed from a  married woman brings good luck to the new bride.


Something blue

      Because in the Victorian era, blue represented purity, fidelity.


And a silver sixpence in her shoe.

      Because the sixpence is a silver British coin that represents  prosperity and protection.

      That’s why the British rhyme says:

Something old,
something new,
something borrowed,
something blue,
and a silver sixpence in her shoe.
