This 100 year old fad is a new one on me. Love Locks!
This year padlocks started to show up on this walking bridge between the East and West halves of Roosevelt Park in South East Minot. My first reaction was... what the heck!
I knew there had to be something to it and as more and more locks appeared I noticed names written on the locks. With that little bit of knowledge I typed into my browser "Padlock Love" and walla. I'm now wikki informed that it's a 100 year old fad started in Serbia.
The short story is this: A local schoolmistress named Nada, who was from Vrnjačka Banja, fell in love with a Serbian officer named Relja. After they committed to each other Relja went to war in Greece where he fell in love with a local woman from Corfu. Nada never recovered from that devastating blow, and after some time she died due to heartbreak from her unfortunate love. To read more head over to wikki.
So I'm curious, have you ever participated in this fad? I may become a participant tomorrow... you all know what a romantic I am.
