Henna nights, where joy and sorrow are felt together, are celebrated with different rituals depending on cultural traditions and regions.
Turkish henna nights are bridal parties with a deep-rooted history dating back to Ottoman times. During henna nights, the bride bids farewell to her parents’ home.
The bride’s female family members and friends gather together to celebrate and there is a tradition of singing folk songs to make the bride cry while putting henna on her hands.
