Did you know that various metals are associated with specific wedding anniversaries.
Here is the list of wedding anniversary gifts made of materials. It can be a small confusing because there are both Traditional and Modern versions. I have just listed the anniversaries that include metal to keep carefully the list a little shorter.
* 6th Anniversary - Iron is usually Modern
* 7th - Copper is usually Traditional and Brass is definitely Modern
* 8th - Bronze is usually Traditional
* 10th - Light weight aluminum (our Pewter Finish) is Modern
* 19th - Bronze is Contemporary
* 21st - Brass or Nickel (our Silver Nickel) is Contemporary
* 22nd - Copper, listed once again, is the Modern Gift
The bottom line is:
If you don't destroy the tree, your carving will become there until the tree dies of later years, then you can go back to see it on your 50th wedding anniversary. If the tree gets diseased, you may look in vain, but hardly ever find your declaration of eternal interest. Your dearest may think that you have lost your mind, and put you in a house, when in fact all you did was kill a tree. The solution is so very obvious!
