Themes and Symbols for the 28th Anniversary Year
There are no traditional symbols linked with the 28th year of marriage as after the silver wedding anniversary commemorating 25 years of union, only every fifth year is associated historically with a particular material.
However in more modern times, there have been contemporary lists drawn up that link different themes with every year of marriage from 1 to 100. In these up to date versions, the 28th wedding anniversary is linked with the theme of orchids.
This makes purchasing symbolic and meaningful gifts much easier for your family and friends on this special occasion as orchids or orchid themed gifts are easy to find.
Facts About Orchids
The colorful and beautiful blossoms of an orchid are easily recognizable, and they belong to a large family of plants which is one of the largest plant families in existence. Orchids have the origins millions of years ago, in fact there is evidence that they were around 20 million years ago. They are found all over the world, except in glaciers, and can grow on all kinds of surfaces, even in rocky habitats. They are frequently used to make perfume fragrances, traditional medicines and in cooking. Vanilla pods come from a variety of orchid, while the tubers of other varieties have been traditionally eaten by the Aboriginal people for generations. Orchids are often considered to have a cultural significance, and are the national flowers of several countries including Venezuela, Columbia and Singapore.
