Happy Tuesday y’all


Here’s a little factoid I found that may explain why the summer months are the most popular time of the year to get married.

. . . Didja know?

During the 16th century, newly married couples in France had to stand naked outdoors while the groom kissed the bride's left foot and big toe as part of traditional customs.

Wonder if they were just naked alone or in front of all the wedding guest. If the guy had a foot fetish....everyone would know his business before too long.
