Kurdish people of Iran’s Khorasan, who are known as Kurmanji Kurds, have managed to preserve their centuries-old wedding customs, and are still practicing many of them in their ceremonies.

The big ceremony of giving gifts of Eid to newlywed women is an old tradition that has been practiced by Iranians since ancient times. The ceremony is mostly held on auspicious days and Eids, including Nowruz (Persian New Year), Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha, etc., to give gifts to brides.
Nowruz-e Sayyad, meaning the Fishermen’s New Year, is one of the oldest traditions of people in Qeshm Island, southern Iran, which dates back to more than six hundred years ago.
