A tradition of “beheading” a bottle of champagne
A tradition that is finding its way into wedding feasts, parties, and formal dinners is that of “beheading” a bottle of champagne with a sabre specially made for the occasion. Begun as a means of showing off their skill on horseback, the hussards under Napoleon’s command celebrated their victories by “sabring” off the top of a bottle of champagne.
