Asian Marriage Tradition

Look out there! Newlywed bride steps out softly from wedding coach.
Tradition expects the bride to step on lid on the huge pot.
Would she do? Before entering in her own home to-be then.

Contest: Walk Softly by Debbie Guzi
tenth place win
There is a marriage tradition in some of the Asian countries. A huge pot filled with grains is put at the threshold of the Groom’s house. The newly-wed bride has to step on the lid of the pot to enter her home-to-be.
In India, the tradition is generally practiced in all Hindu marriages.

    I had never heard of this custom before. Most interesting. It just shows me how little I know of the indian culture. I also see that this was a winner. Congratulations!
