Rituals

Rituals, the terrible name for something really nice. Rituals are the act of performing a ceremony that may result in a physical keepsake from the day for example a hand fasting ceremony where you will keep the knot tied. You may also have a ceremony included that the act symbolises, like a butterfly release symbolising love, hope, and beauty.

Sand pouring- Pouring together of different sands to symbolise the granules never possibly being able to be separated into their individual origins again.
