Moravia…

So, I’ve been learning a lot about the history of Bethlehem, PA lately, and one of the things I’ve been learning about is the Moravians who settled there. They had a tradition that I thought was particularly awesome:

The Maiden Threw Her Shoe

If and when one will be married is a question asked all over the world. In parts of Moravia, it was a popular custom on Christmas Eve for unwed girls to take off one shoe, turn their back to their front door, and toss the shoe at the door. Tradition said that if the shoe landed with its toe pointing to the door, the girl would be married before the next Christmas.

So, I decided to try…

…and if this is at all accurate, I’ll be married by next Christmas. πŸ™‚ Here’s hoping! LOL.
