MARRIAGE & ANIMALS
---The Book of Days: A Miscellany of Popular Antiquities, R. Chambers, 1865
The Book of Days also notes some inauspicious times for marriage, including the month of May, the feast of St. Joseph and all other penitential days, and early in the morning. June was seen as the best month to marry, especially during the full moon, or if the sun and moon were in conjunction. Among Jews, weddings are prohibited on Tisha V'Av, a day of mourning, as well as on the Sabbath.
