TRIVIAL PURSUITS: From where did the term ‘honeymoon’ originate?

From where did the term ‘honeymoon’ originate?

Answer: A tradition in Northern Europe was to give a newlywed couple mead—a wine created by fermenting honey with water. In order to bring good luck, the newlywed couple drank the wine for a month after the wedding. Since a month was known as a moon, this period of time acquired the name ‘honeymoon.’
