My maternal grandfather's parents married 11 February 1890 in Greene County, Virginia.
|Mary Frances Jollett Davis|
10 Jan 1870 - 22 Feb 1950
|Walter Beriah Sylvester Davis|
12 Sep 1867 - 31 Oct 1934
The last anniversary Mary Frances and Walter Davis celebrated together was their 44th. What is the traditional gift to mark 44 years of togetherness? In the US there is no specified gift although one website offers "GROCERIES" - WHAT? Not very romantic. Spain and Italy suggest Turquoise while Russia and France say Topaz.
The hubster and I are coming up on 48 - still no traditional gift. Germany, Russia and France suggest a gift of Amethyst - yeah, I'll take that. Spain and Italy think Feldspar would be appropriate. A "MODERN" gift includes "Optical Goods." What's that? New bifocals?
What do you give someone on their 131st anniversary?
