Going on your Honeymoon was derived from Mead Brewing.
Mead to Honeymoon
Mead is one of the world’s oldest fermented beverages. Ancient myths and writings throughout the world contain references to alcoholic beverages that were drunk by both people and gods alike.
The word Honeymoon ( where did it come from?)
Mead was a part of the rituals of the Celts, AngloSaxons and Vikings. It was believed to have magical, healing powers even capable of increasing fertility. The word Honeymoon is derived from the practice of the newlyweds drinking mead for one month (a moon) after the wedding. If the mead was "proper," a son would be born nine months later.
