Japanese legend has it that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish such as long life, or a thousand years of good luck. The crane, in Asia, is one of many mystical symbols, that is said to live for thousands of years. World wide, the crane has come to be recognized as a symbol for peace. But you don't have to fold them yourself! Often a folder will give the thousand cranes as a wedding gift, wishing the couple a thousand years of happiness and prosperity!
Someone once told me that when Japanese people get married it's customary to make a (certain large amount I can't remember exactly) of origami paper cranes. I think it's a beautiful tradition with a beautiful result. I wish I had the patience to do it just because.
