Do you know where the word and tradition of "honeymoon"

Honeymoon comes from an ancient Norse custom, calling
for the bride and groom to drink mead for a "moon" cycle in
order to increase their luck and fertility and therefore their
chances of a happy and fulfilled marriage.

What is Mead? This traditional honeywine is made exclusively
on Lindisfarne Island, based on a secret family recipe that incorporates
honey from the four corners of the world vatted with fermented
grape juice, the pure natural water from an artesian well on the
island and fortified with fine spirits.
