Have you ever wondered where the word “honeymoon” derived from? It’s an Old English word that is the “marriage” of Hony ("the indefinite period of tenderness and pleasure experienced by a newlywed couple") and Moon (the amount of time that the “hony” would last).
Ah, now it really makes sense when we hear someone say, “the honeymoon is over”.
Although honeymoons are traditionally taken following a couple’s wedding ceremony, guess how many couples actually get around to having one of their dreams? Reportedly, only 1 in 4.
Gee, that’s not good.
It does happen to be one of the motivating reasons for this post, though. Whether you were fortunate enough to have your dream honeymoon following your wedding day or you didn’t (or didn’t have one at all), we’ve got a few reasons why we think there’s no time like the present to plan a honeymoon (even if it’s just a mini one)—and then to make it a tradition to go on one at least once a year.
