Well, Happy Easter! This week’s episode has nothing to do with the rising of Christ other than the fact that we used Peeps to decapitate instead of actual baby chicks—because marshmallow Peeps are extremely religious. Anyway, Samantha and I will be appearing this Saturday April 11th on The Dr. Susan Block Show to celebrate Dr. Suzy and The Captain Max’s 23rd Wedding Anniversary. Leading up to this fabulous milestone, we thought we’d take a gander at some of the wedding traditions around the world. Although many were interesting, we chose a few of the more bizarre and disgusting to highlight by explaining the custom and its region of observance, as well as simulating the ritual, to the best of our ability. We hope you laugh and learn something.
Samantha and I’s matching white wardrobe throughout the entire video is probably wackiest of all to the rest of the world. Most parts of the world traditionally wear almost everything but white and up until 1840, and that included Western Europe. In retrospect that is actually relatively recent being a tradition beginning only 150 years ago. The game changer?—Queen Victoria. Her royal marriage to Prince Albert adorned in a white wedding dress set a new precedent for bountiful brides everywhere.
