Happy Ruby Anniversary for Parents

Your anniversary is a landmark of the time you and your spouse have spent together for the past year or several years. Each anniversary serves as a reminder of the tough times that you have been through and all the adversities that both of you had to face together, and also serves as a reminder of the fact that, no matter what came along the way, both of you were together through heaven and hell and you have achieved victory over things that many succumb to.

Like most things in life, the quote, the older the merrier, serves right for anniversaries. Every anniversary has a name by which it is known, and that name has a significance of its own. While the first anniversary is known as the Paper Anniversary in the United States or Cotton Anniversary in the United Kingdom, the 40th anniversary is universally known as the Ruby Anniversary, across the Globe. Why is the 40th anniversary called the Ruby Anniversary is a question often asked and although the answer is not particularly known, it is often argued that it is so because the red color of a ruby symbolizes eternal togetherness and prosperity? Below are two lists of names assigned to every anniversary, starting from the 1st to 15th

  1. Paper Anniversary

  3. Leather Anniversary
  4. Linen or Silk Anniversary
