Locking Your Love, An Ancient Chinese Custom
It is not known how or when this ancient Chinese custom began, but the lock-laden chains, common at the Great Wall of China, have begun to appear elsewhere in the world. Hundreds of metal locks are locked on chains with care by those who wish to symbolize their enduring love. Fasten a lock on the chain and throw away the key, thus uniting your love for eternity.According to this ancient Chinese custom, as long as the lock remains on the chain, love will endure. Most of the locks are China made,some are Heart shaped,even some are red coloured.I have visited the Great Wall and seen many locks, locked,Most popular idea is to lock the “love” together, I asked somebody there,one person said ,somebody locks their “secrets” forever. The first one seems to be more authentic.
