A Day through my female cousin's wedding (written in detail)

Here I will show you my female cousin's wedding I've recently attended in detail. I know some of you may want to know what the wedding was like.

My female and I were living in two different towns. That morning, my father hailed a taxi to take my mom and I to my female cousin's home. When we arrived there, there had been some elders coming to pay a visit. My aunt, mother of my femle counsin was busy preparing for the wedding. she was cooking sweet soup with eggs and Lotus seeds, which has special meaning for blessing the new husband and wife. Staying in my female cousin's house at that early moment seems familiar to me as I come to her house every time  in the Spring Festival. 

However, when I saw her bridesmaids all in pink surround with my female cousin in a white wedding dress, the whole world changed a little. I stared at her face for two seconds. It seemed that I wanted to remember her face with make-up in her special day. At the same time, I tried to recollect my memory about how she was like at the last time we met. However, I couldn't get any clue as to what she looked like before. Here in front of me was the one what we called wife-to-be. 

Around 10 o'clock, the husband-to-be reached my female cousin's house. A group of bridesmaids  flocked down to the first floor, checked and maked sure the door was close. After a second, from the outside came noise of men. They knocked at the door loudly and even banged the door at random intervals. Sometimes the sound of the hits on the door scared me and the female indoor a little. Some of us thought the door might be destroyed. 

The bridesmaids opened the window a little and asked people from the side of husband-to-be for lucky money. At the same time, they tried to make fun, squirting people outside with special stuff in colors. All of a sudden a gun salute was fired towards the window, all the stuff in the gun salute bursting out and flying into the indoor throught the window, which made us frightened a little bit. How crazy they were, the people of the groom!

After rounds and rounds of yelling for lucky money by the bridesmaids and banging the door by the people of the groom, the door was finally opened. Then a group of people swarmed into the house, stepping upstairs to meet the bride. I saw so many smiling faces appearing before me. Among all the people in the house, the groom smiled most happily, asking for the bride and following the bridesmaids upstairs.

When the bride and the groom went downstairs to the first floor, people from my cousin's side put up the folding desk as an altar, placed a censer and stuff in plates like apples. And then they lighted incenses, sticked the incenses in the censers and did other things for worship. And the bride and the groom stood before the altar, bowing three times consecutively according to the local tradition.

After the worshipping stuff, people from my cousin's side carried her dowry to the car bound for the groom's home. A bridemaid held a red umbrella for the bride on the way to the car. Then the trip started. My mom and I and people from my cousin's side got on  the rented bus, leaving for the groom's home.

There we were at the groom's home. The bride's dowry was placed at her new bedroom with the groom. We were served at a large resteraunt for lunch. After lunch, we were sent back by the rented bus.

About 3:50, the bride came back to her parents' home with the groom where a ritual was held. The ritual was for my counsin's parents and senior relatives to sit before the bride and the groom. The groom held the wedding candies placed in a wedding cloth  with both hands and asked my cousin's parents and the senior relatives to eat. The bride fetched cups of tea nearby and asked them to have tea.

After this ritual, the bride and the groom left for the groom's home again.

In the evening, my cousin's mom and dad that are my aunt and uncle held a banquet for relatives to celebrate their daughter's marriage. At the same time, the groom's family held a banquet to celebrate the wedding.

This is all I know from my memory of the wedding which has happened recently.

    Actually I may make you misunderstood. Before China's reform and opening-up, an very important policy to China and to the world as well, Chinese women preferred to cover up, only leaving their faces, necks and hands in the air. So there was a long time when Chinese women filled themselves up with clothes. And now, the old Chinese people or even my mom still think they are so exposed with just a little cloth when girls on TV show more parts of their bodies outside, of course, they are wearing clothes still. But Chinese young girls do copy the trend of wearing shorts to show off their fair-skinned legs, which started in South Korea, I think. In South Korea there are many girl groups. They are singers and dancers as well. They wear short dress or short shorts to attract our eyeballs. As far as I am concerned, in terms of the Chinese girls who wear shorts or short skirts, maybe there are some sluts but I believe that most of them just want to follow the trend, feeling confident themselves and maybe they just like the way they are dressed. Another thing to add to that is that Chinese modern girls still want to cover their upper bodies so they choose clothes that help avoid any exposion of their upper bodies except for their arms,necks and faces. So in fact, you can't easily find any sluts in China, yet. Back to the topic of my blog, my point is that the art I saw a few days ago is made with a thing which shapes as a woman's body and the painter drawed a traditional Chinese picture on it. I think it is fine for art to do so. We should not think about sex while talking about art. Art is nothing to do with sex just as sex is nothing to do with art. The last point I want to talk with you is that I am not a person who welcomes sluts, not to mention to be OK with it. But I love arts. Art embodies beauty and inspiration. Anyway, you do give me a new way to think about girls who wear so sexually even when they don't mean it.

    Not all females like to dress like a slut. Many females still do dress like ladies and to me this is far more attractive. I agree with China that sluts should be made to feel ashamed of themselves. Why do females feel the need to display their bodies in public anyway? It is because they are sluts. The worst ones are the ugly sluts because they are disgusting. Some guy like you will encourage sluts because you are only thinking of the hot ones but what happens when you have to walk by some big fat 60 year old slut that has decided to go topless in public? This should be enough to make any person vomit but in ridiculous places like New York USA where they encourage sluts there is nothing that can be done about all of these disgustingly ugly sluts that get about. Is that really what you want? To give license to any horrid old slut to walk about in public without a shirt or bra on? You need to think much harder. And even a hot chick that walks about without a shirt on should be despised because what are they trying to gain by dressing this way? Advantage? What massive sluts these sluts are. And you know what else is slutty? High heels. Why do females where high heels? To be festive? It is because they are sluts. And all of these sluts that wear skirts to work all through winter - what massive sluts they are. They know why they have the job dont they? Guys like you wouldnt be as nice to them if they wore flat shoes and other sensible non-slutty clothing would they? What sluts!
