Judging by the numbers rolling in, I need to send out hearty congratulations to all the happy couples who got engaged over the holidays! Since mid-December, clicks have skyrocketed on the Traditions Wedding Blog and the About.com Wedding Traditions channel, with more than 4,000 newlyweds-to-be seeking information on how to choose a lucky wedding day.
To help you pinpoint that perfect day, I have posted two new articles on auspicious wedding dates in 2013 and 2014. The first, “Picking a Blessed Day to Declare, “I Do!,” takes a look at how cultures around the world select their wedding dates. From the Chinese Tung Shing to the Japanese Koyomi to the Hindu Panchangam, these ancient traditions are an art form that is conducted by a professional matchmaker or astrologer.
The second article, Lucky Weekend Wedding Dates, identifies all the potential auspicious weekend wedding dates in 2013 and early 2014, according to the Tung Shing and Panchangam almanacs.
Since the goal of this project is to celebrate cultures worldwide, I’m ecstatic that the blog is attracting an international audience outside the U.S., ranging from Singapore and the Philippines to Australia and India!
I would love to share your personal stories about how your cultural traditions made it into your wedding celebrations. Also, if there is a topic you are curious about, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a note on the Guestbook.
