Baby Shower Traditions:
As a tradition, henna is applied to the future mother during her pregnancy and after she has given birth. During the pregnancy, a woman has henna applied on her body as a means of celebration. During the eighth month of pregnancy, there is a traditional ceremony similar to the western baby shower. In this ceremony, the mother is rubbed with scented essential oils, She sits in a special chair while her friends and family fill her lap with fruits, sweets and a coconut. Such foods are symbols of abundance for the mother. Her body is ornamented with designs that represent health, protection and good luck for the mother and the child. This tradition is also a means to provide the woman with a social safety net within her community, so she has help from others and so she is reintegrated into society after the birth of her child.
Bridal Shower Traditions:
Traditionally, henna is applied to the bride as a means of adornment. The intricate designs represent the strength of love in a marriage, along with symbols of luck, prosperity, and abundance. At a bridal shower, the bride's friends gather and celebrate her upcoming marriage. Everyone is adorned with henna as a means of celebration. Good wishes are bestowed on the bride to be!
Another tradition is the "false henna night," which is celebrated among Kurdish Jewish families. This was a celebration a few days before the actual marriage ceremony of the bride. It was believed that evil spirits would come to a wedding and bring back luck, infertility, and misery to a marriage, so a false celebration would trick the spirits!
