The History Of The Lovespoon
Centuries ago in Wales, a tradition was born that involved the carving and giving of Lovespoons. The name becomes somewhat apparent when we realise that a young welsh lover gave the spoon to the person that they held love for.
While the young lover would primarily give their desire cakes and sweets, the presentation of the Lovespoon was more personal and represented the love that was to be given. If you would like to see one of the earliest examples of a Lovespoon that dates back to 1667, then you can visit the Museum of Welsh Life.
Nowadays, we commonly refer to an act of cuddling as spooning; it is thought that this name derives from the presentation of Lovespoons throughout Celtic tradition. While Lovespoons are more prominent throughout Welsh history, they have been known throughout Europe in many Celtic countries. In fact, in Brittany, the literal translation for their Lovespoons translates to “spoons of marriage”.
