With every welcoming gesture of being part of a new family, there is also a sad farewell to your own family and history. On March 26th a Turkish Bridal Party or Henna Night was sponsored by the Raindrop Turkish Cultural Center in Lenexa Kansas. Women of the Book experienced a Turkish tradition for celebrating the evening before the wedding. Handmade items were displayed. These gifts from the mother and mother-in-law are seen as examples of the domestic talents of each family. The bride enters the room veiled and sits in the middle of the gathering as a sad story is sung about a young woman who leaves her family to live with her husband.  (March 26, 2009 Lenexa, KS)
