http://elizabethanenglandlife.com/elizabethan-england-superstitions.html The first theater that other theaters were modeled after was the Globe Theater. It was built at Shoreditch, London in 1576. the reason the Globe Theater was built because of "The Theater" started a chain reaction after it was made. When the lease was up on "The Theater" and the price was raised the troupe refused to agree to the terms. The new owner was going to build over it but he allowed them to dismantle it and movie it, but it collapsed. The purpose built in the Globe theater was to allow stage productions to become quite sophisticated with the use of massive props. Such as cannons, smoke, fireworks, and trap doors. Special effects at the theater were also a spectacular addition at the theater allowing for smoke effects. The Theater also had music which no other theater had as an effect. The shows never got old because the often presented eleven different times with ten different plays. Special Effects Marriage for the wealthy and poor were the same way by arrangement. It was a contract to continue the lineage and for the royal it usually didn't include love. It was frown upon for courtship to be between two different classes. It was considered taboo and was sometimes punishable by death. Marriage followed a specific set of protocols that represented maturity. There were many business deals to ensure the longevity of their lineage. The marriage also signified that loose morals and visiting brothels would stop. Then the focus would turn to his family and reproducing an heir. After courtship came a promise of marriage. After the promise they would then join hands and perform the hand fasting ceremony. After exchanging the promise they call each other husband and wife though they were not married yet. They were then required to call the banns, a public announcement for the union. For three successive Sundays they were required to go to church before they could continue with the final step. The banns were designed to allow time for anyone to reveal any reason why the couple should not be married. They had to have very decent files, especially the women. The last step was the actual wedding. The feast was big and everyone one would dance and drink wine. It would end when they consummated their union. They only reason they married was to benefit each other. They were usually also married for wealth and reputation.

The Weapons Era The queen needed a bigger army because Spain and France wanted to attack. So as the army gut bigger the weapons began to advance to other weapons as apposed to swords. Other weapons that were favored in war were the battle axe, dagger, halberd, longbow, mace, pike, spear, and the crossbow. Education The education was affected by the monarch of the ruling king or queen. To add to the confusion there were also the sides of the Catholics and Protestants. Only boys were allowed to go to school. Children age five to seven were sent to schools referred to as "Petty school" or "Dame school". They were not actual schools they were housewives that taught for a small fee. In those schools they were taught to read and write in English. They were taught the most important foundations which were catechism and lessons on proper behavior. The main focus on schools were to teach them these things at an early age and teach them Christianity. Superstitions They used to believe in many superstitions, not just the common folk but nobility and the royal. A few are still believed to today's date in age. Sneezing with your mouth open was bad because it gave the devil a chance to enter you. Pots stirred counter - clockwise would give bad luck to who ever ate it. The seventh son of the seventh son allegedly had supernatural powers. Last of my examples, good luck charms included iron, silver, fire, salt, and running water.
