When is the Best Day to get married?

Wedding Weather Lore

If choosing a date for the “Big Day” isn’t hard enough, here’s an old weather rhyme about getting married:

Married in January’s chilling time, widowed you’ll be before your prime.

Married in February’s sleety weather, life you’ll tread in tune together.

Married when March winds shrill and roar, your home will be on foreign shore.

Married ‘neath April’s changing skies, a checkered path before you lies.

Married when bees over May blossoms flit, strangers around your board will sit.

Married in the merry month of June, life will be one honeymoon.

Married as July’s flower banks blaze, bittersweet memories in after days.

Married in August heat and drowse, lover and friend in your chosen spouse.

Married in gold September glow, smooth and serene your life will flow.

Married when leaves in October thin, toil and hardship for you begin.

Married in the veils of November mist, fortune your wedding ring has missed.

Married in days of December’s cheer, love will shine brighter year after year.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
