INCLUDING THIS INFO IN THE "what tree did you fall from" above
It seems that “jumping the broom” is a custom that dates back to somewhere
around the 1600s in Africa but has roots in Celtic cultures as well. It has
become a popular African-American wedding ceremony tradition and represents
joining of the two families . Some sources also say that it represents the
“sweeping away” of the old to enter the new part of their lives with their
spouse (or new beginnings). Apparently, the custom originated during the time
of slavery when slaves were not permitted to marry. They would marry secretly
within their community and the act of jumping the broom became a legal bonding act
that legitimized the marriage in the community. Many believe that today,
jumping the broom is a ritual passed down to African-Americans from their
ancestors to remind them of a time when their vows were not legally sanctioned.
OMG.....!!!!I will marry my best friend, the closest person to my heart.......thump..thump.... We have known each other for a very long time (since 1996) and it is a wonderful friendship.
