If you are a woman and in Pakistan during Ramadan and Eid, you must - at the end of Ramadan - get your hands hennared. Its so much fun and a very traditional thing to do. Buy new clothes, shoes, and henna. The girls who apply this henna are so experienced and very artistic. I must say tho' I did not like one of my hand designs. Next time i will be more vocal, but for a first time experience it was fun. BE WARNED - HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO SPARE. They told me it would only take 10 mins. The 10 mins was to apply the design. THEN it takes about 30 -40 mins to dry before the remove the residue. I had mine done in one of the markets in Islamabad, but you will find the stalls everywhere just prior to EID.
