Exchange of Kola Nuts

In Africa the Kola Nut is most often used for medicinal purposes in Africa. It is also essential in most African weddings. The Kola Nut symbolizes the couple's willingness to always help heal each other. In Nigeria, the ceremony is not complete until a Kola Nut is shared between the couple and their parents. Many African-American couples incorporate the sharing of a Kola Nut into their ceremonies, and then keep the nut in their home afterwards as a reminder to always work at healing any problems they encounter.
