Information on wedding traditions
For a book I've written, I quoted a little piece about Egyptian wedding traditions, written by a foreign author. Here is the piece: " next morning, she would wear a cheerful red robe, and family members would visit later, bringing cookies, peanuts, sugar, vegetables and other foods, all symbolic provisions for her new home. The food gifts are called aashyan, which derives from the verb "to live." "
I talked to an Egyptian friend but she said she doesn't know this word or the ritual mentioned at the article. What I need to know is if there is a word that sounds like "aashyan" in Arabic (she wrote the word for English speaking people so I know this isn't the exact way you can read in Arabic. And if there is such word, how would you write it in Arabic?
You can directly write me or to the group, whichever you prefer.
Thanks so much for everyone who'd share their information.
