Just like a marriage is a rite of passage in any person's life, a honney is also considered as a rite of passage for all couples. But not many of us know the actual idea behind where the term 'honeymoon' comes from.
It is thought that just after the completion of the wedding rituals and ceremonies, a groom whisks his new bride away to some location where none could find them. The would stay there for an entire moon phase drinking a honey-based drink called mead. And thus, the moon phase and the honey-based mean became the basis for the term 'honeymoon'.
