the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and since their calendar was
lunar based, this period of time was known as the honey thirty day period, which we
know today as the honeymoon. 

Hmmm…. I do not know. I appeared this up way too and found this on Wikipedia:

Right now, honeymoon has a favourable which means, but initially it may well have referred to the inescapable waning of like like a phase of the moon. In 1552, Richard Huloet wrote:

“Hony mone, a time period proverbially utilized to these kinds of as be recently married, which will not fall out at the 1st, but th’one loveth the other at the commencing exceedingly, the likelihood of their exceadinge love showing up to aswage, ye which time the vulgar folks get in touch with the hony mone.

In English pubs, ale is requested by pints and quarts… So in previous England ,
when prospects acquired unruly, the bartender would yell at them ‘Mind your pints

It is wherever we get the phrase ‘mind your P’s and Q’s’

Hmmm… I checked SNOPES and received this:

“At the time the saying became element of the English lexicon, beer wasn’t vended in pubs by the pint or quart. As an alternative, it was drawn from kegs, with patrons charged by the glass or tankard. Distributors as a result would not have utilized chalked tote boards scrawled with p’s for “pints” and q’s for “quarts” in an effort to retain monitor of who owed for what.” 

The bottom line is that they you should not know the origin of Ps and Qs while some people today assume it was from academics admonishing their college students to be very careful of their p’s and q’s.
