11 Celebrity Couples We’d Give a Slab of Bacon To For Flitch Day
The tradition of “Flitch Day” involves giving a slab of bacon to happily married couples. Here are our celeb picks, including William and Kate + more!
Happy Flitch Day, Bettys! Wait… what? What the heck is Flitch Day? Flitch Day is a remarkable holiday we here at BettyConfidential have just found out about, so naturally, we had to share our findings with you. It’s a fun one!
So what exactly is this strange “Flitch Day” of which we speak? Here’s the quick version: The holiday originates in 15th century England and recognizes couples—usually newlyweds—who have lived in marital bliss for the past twelve months. Each pair who was deemed worth was given a “flitch”—that is, a large slab of bacon. Because why the heck not?
Accordingly, we’ve rounded up 11 celebrity couples to whom we’d like to award a Flitch Day slab of virtual bacon. In keeping with Flitch Day tradition, we’ve tried to feature mostly newlywed couples who have gotten married somewhere in the neighborhood of a year ago; however, we’re bending the rules a little bit by including a few of our favorite celeb couples who have super strong marriages. In any case, though, what these lovebirds all have in common is that their relationships are all drama-free.
Which couples would you award a flitch? Tell us in the comments!
1. William and Kate
Of course these two would top the list. Somehow, despite the extremely public nature of their relationship, despite the constant demands placed upon them as a couple, and (oh, right) despite that whole royalty thing, these two have been married for just over a year and they’re still going strong. Ah, true love!
2. Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig
We’ve commented in the past about how awesome we think it is that Rachel and Daniel are so low-profile about their relationship. Towards the end of June last year, they went off for the weekend and quietly came back as a married couple—and we love them for it. Here. Have some bacon.
3. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert
Country crooners Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert back in May of 2011, and it’s been all smiles and sunshine since then. After their wedding, Miranda gushed, “I’m married to my best friend! Looking forward to a lifetime of laughter,” while Blake revealed, “I wanted to be married to Miranda the day I proposed. Finally, it’s official!” Since we couldn’t feed them bacon on their first wedding anniversary this year, we’re giving it to them (in virtual form) now.
