I can't help but wonder how traditions like this truly evolved. Certainly, honey would have been important in many cultures before sugar cane took over. It certainly shows a level of respect for the human/bee interface that has been lacking in the modern era, but is hopefully re-emerging as people realize the damage we're doing to bee populations.
