I recently heard a very interesting story about the first time a Nifi met her in-laws…
The Nifi knew her future husbands parents but this would be the first time that she would officially meet them. It was an important moment for the family and for the Nifi so that they could start off their new relationship on the right foot.
The Nifi did exactly that… she made her first step into the house with her right foot. The mother-in-law wrapped a white shawl around her head and helped her and guided her in through the front door and then around the house.
This was a tradition that was passed down through the generations and a lovely way to welcome the Niffi into the family.
How were you welcomed into the new family?
