Lots of Irish traditions center on Celtic mythology, and marriage is no different. A traditional Irish wedding follows many rituals, like the placing of the child of Prague outside the bride’s house the night before the wedding, which is said to help when praying for good weather. In fact, there are so many superstitions surrounding the statue that it is said to perform better if it’s missing the head. The Irish are very good at laughing at themselves, and when explaining this to someone they may finish with the line “only in Ireland.”
