Lucchetti D’Amore

In the mood for some randomness today.

I had often wondered, while walking on the bridge over the Raritan, why anybody would put locks on a bridge fence. There weren’t enough locks on the fence to have piqued my curiosity enough to find out more about it. After all, people do amusing things without much reason all the time. Came across a picture today which reminded me of it and turns out that the practice of hanging love-padlocks, on fences and such, is a more global phenomenon. Couples profess their ‘undying’ love through a ‘love-lock’ and then toss the key into the river. Did I mention that people do amusing things all the time!
