On the half of August there is a special girls festival in all Tigray. It always starts by gathering of all well dressed and decorated girls to celebrate the festival, and must go to the respective local church to deliver pray before God for his willingness keeping them healthy and permit them get gathered to celebrate the festival. After delivering the pray, they head to a house were they pass the whole night playing local dancing. The next morning, they move each house in thier locality to convey that Ashenda is ongoing, and best wish to the local people. There is a reward in kind to the girls and finally perhaps on the end day, they contribute all the materials to church and pray to God to get gathered the next Ashenda.
It is super amazing festival which is mostly celebrated outside, massively and free of any abstains commonly imposed on the girls on the ordinary days. there are lots of prays, songs, proverbs related to Ashegoda in specific. young boys wishes to folow them to share the fun and sometimes to protect them of any danger from aroundelse.
If i have to remind you one proverb about Ashenda is "donot choose to marriage from Ashenda girl " as every girl is super decorated with new clothes and jewlleries.
Ashenda the utmost happiness days of girls.
