Eve of the Wedding Celebration

The Wedding Eve Celebration takes place one or two evenings before the wedding itself. You don't send invitations for this evening, it's just announced. The original idea behind this custom was to scare off the evil spirits by smashing the old dishes. Additionally, the saying "broken crockery is lucky" is implemented. The important part is just to make bride and bridegroom sweep the pieces together. (Authors Comment: Throw in beer bottle caps into the glass pieces to make it difficult for the couple!)
