Day 3 of the wedding celebrations is traditionally the day that both families and friends of the bride and groom visit their new house and give them their presents. Of course this only happens after yet more celebrations, dancing and food.
The presents were all gathered together near the couple and each one was announced individually. Gifts of money were counted out in public (which I found rather disconcerting) and the other gifts were unwrapped and shown to all in the room to show their appreciation by clapping and dancing their congratulations. Feri and I chose to give the couple a gold coin, sekke, and I also bought a “lucky” horse-shoe over from the UK which created some interest.
The bride wore yet another beautiful gown and looked as fresh and as lively as on day 1 of the festivities.
I don’t know how they do it!
