Countries around the world celebrate different events (national/international, cultural, or religious.) Choose one of the events celebrated in Morocco (e.g. Aid Al Fitr, Imilchil festival, New year’s Eve, Moussems, etc.) and write a letter to tell your pen friend about it.
These ideas might help you:
The event/festival celebrated, – Where and when it is celebrated, – How people celebrate it( any special meals, clothes, visits, feelings, etc.). – The importance of this celebration in our culture, – Your own feelings, opinion and/or attitudes.
I would like to thank you for your last letter. This time I will talk about a milestone for my family.
Over a hundred of guests from all over Morocco were present last July to take part in my cousin’s wedding ceremony. The wedding was celebrated in a big decorated and lovely place. After exchanging greeting and congratulations with couple’s parents we sat, my mum and I, around a table. The guests were divided by gender. Women were wearing beautiful caftans and Takchitas. As for men, they were wearing Djelabbas or modern suits.
After that, the groom and the bride were coming. All guests were excited to welcome them. The groom was wearing a beautiful Djelabba and the bride her beautiful caftan and heavy jewelry.
We spent a memorable evening. We all shared dances to the rhythm of traditional music. Mint tea and several varieties of cookies were served to us. Also, they served us dishes like pastilla and meat with dried prunes.
Everyone took pictures with the bride and groom to have a memory of this wonderful ceremony. We all wished a very happy marriage to the couple and left the ceremony.
I hope you have an idea now on the celebration of marriages in Morocco.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
