lady decided to marry the miller and stayed with him, despite
his poverty. As the neighbors heard about the news of them
nearly starving, they came with help. They showered gifts and
money on the newly married couple. From the money and gifts
showered to the couple, they set up a good home and a good
for themselves. Since then, this tradition of bridal showers
