Brooms and Marriage

It is said that jumping the broom comes from African tradition, but it's exact origins are unclear. In Asante culture, brooms had spiritual significance and could "sweep away" evil spirits. Brooms would be waved over the heads of the bride and groom to ward them off, and they would later jump over it. During slavery lovers were not allowed to marry and live together, so jumping the broom was substituted to declare matrimony. Jumping the broom is still part of weddings today and the brooms used are often elaborately decorated.
