We’ve heard that rain on your wedding day may actually be a sign of good luck, and it symbolizes “fertility and cleansing,” but lightning? We’re not quite sure what that means.
The father of the bride at a wedding was just standing up after the groom’s father to give his speech. He opened with “Adam, you are some lucky guy,” when there was a sudden flash of lightning right behind the bride’s dad. He says he saw his daughter’s reaction before feeling and even hearing the strike, but apparently the lightning struck close enough that he was actually electrocuted through the microphone. He even “saw lightning in [his] hand.” He’s completely fine, except for a burn mark on his thumb. “I felt the current go right through me, but it was my hand I was worried about, because I’m a piano man. I want to keep playing. I don’t care if I die. I want to keep playing,” he says.
His wife saw the whole thing from the wedding guest’s perspective, and says there was a “fiery flash” where he was standing. There was an immediate downpour of rain after the strike, which does seem to mean good luck.
But what’s a lightning strike mean? Is it good luck? Bad luck? Have you seen a lightning strike at a wedding before?
