Palestinians celebrate during a traditional wedding party in Arabic "Henna's Night" in Rafah in the southern Gaza strip on Sep. 20, 2016. Palestinians perform the traditional dancing style derived from their folklore, the costumes, songs, music and movements during the folk weddings, some of which are still practised within Palestinian communities. Palestinian weddings last for two days, the first day is known as the Henna Night, during which two separate parties are held for the bride and groom. The groom’s family then goes to the bride’s family home with henna, and the groom’s mother paints henna on the bride’s face. The bride wears the henna dress on this night. Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib
