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.

Presents are prepared by the bridegroom’s family and they are placed in large trays. Then the bridegroom’s female family members take these trays on their heads and joyfully head to the house of the bride’s family to give presents to the bride’s family.

What follows are ILNA’s photos of this traditional ceremony in a village in Gilan province:
