In Shakespeare's 
time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. 
When you pulled on the ropes, the mattress tightened, 
making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the 
phrase...'Goodnight , sleep tight'

It was the accepted 
practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the 
wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with 
all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because 
their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the 
honey month, which we know today as
the honeymoon.

In English pubs, ale 
is ordered by pints and quarts... So in old England , when 
customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them 'Mind 
your pints and quarts, and settle down.' 
[/size][/size]

It's where we get 
the phrase 'mind your P's and Q's'

Many years ago in 
England , pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim, or 
handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill , 
they used the whistle to get some service. 'Wet your whistle' 
is the phrase inspired by this practice.
