In the old days, porridge was an indispensable treat at a wedding feast, as it symbolized fertility. The wedding was not an easy task, hence the expression brew porridge, that is, to invent a difficult thing. Then a new idiom appeared: to clear the mess. Both expressions are found in the well-known proverb: Himself brewed porridge itself and choke it. With a different custom, the expression of porridge is not cooked. From time immemorial in Russia there was an unwritten law bratchiny: the feast was prepared collectively, on equal footing. Each participant of the feast was supposed to deliver their share of products. It was a prerequisite.
