As I read a while ago in the Whyville Times, the Times Editor is getting married!
He said that it was "a groovy Hindu ceremony" and that if anyone wanted
to submit an article on weddings, they could do so. So, I decided to write one.
My friend at school is Hindu, and I have also been to many Hindu weddings since
my mum's friend is Hindu.
A Christian wedding is quite different from a Hindu wedding in many ways. In
my opinion, I think Hindu weddings are much more colorful, and have a great
atmosphere. There are always lots of music, people and decorations around the
time. And the food is great!
Long ago in the Hindu society, the parents of children would match up their
child with a suitable husband or wife. Arranged marriages of this sort are still
somewhat popular now, though in many cases the children have varying degrees
of input in who they'll marry in the end.
The weddings have changed from time to time, but I am going to explain one
that I went to last year. This wedding took place in London, England.
