Marriage is a thing of joy and most times,the bride cries, I mean tears of joy.
Yeah! Weddings are usually accompanied by tears,but the brides and females of the people of Tujia in China take matters to a whole new level.
Starting one whole month in advance the bride starts to cry for 1 hour everyday. Ten days into the ordeal the mom joins the picture, and then ten days later the grandmother does the same. By the end of the month every female in the family is crying alongside the bride . Why? Well, it’s actually supposed to be an expression of joy as the women weep in different tones, kind of like a song,but we call it the ” weeping tone”.
