|Turkish Henna Night|
As part of the Anatolian Nights Series, Turkish Henna Night was held at TCCC on October 2nd 2010. About 50 guests learned about the Henna Night and its significance, enjoyed great food and danced to Turkish folk tunes.
Henna nights are traditional ceremonies for women done before a wedding. Women attending those ceremonies wear special clothes called "Bindalli". “Bindalli” literally means ‘with a thousand branches’, to signify the detail of the handmade figures on the extraordinarily detailed dress. During the ceremony the mother in law paints figures on bride's hand with henna and after that women dance and enjoy themselves with Turkish folk music.
