~ The Loud Send Off ~

Shoes, Honking Horns and the Loud Send Off
Shoes represented the transfer of property from the Father to the Groom. The honking of horns of the tying of cans had it’s roots in the notion that loud noises would scare off evil spirits. Originally it was to protect the innocent young maiden when traveling. Ringing of bells or setting off firecrackers are still other ways of this tradition is still being carried out. The ringing of bells however is done more often as an announcement of the marriage than is a superstitious act to ward off evil spirits.
