Henna Tradition

I love Alanis Morissette. This is a picture of her surrounded by other women with a henna tattoo on her stomach. Apparently, there is a tradition in India and Morocco to have a henna design painted on the belly during the third trimester. The custom is said to "protect and bless the mother and child from any evil or malicious spirits that may be near during delivery," according to the Henna Caravan website. I have to remember this if we are successful.
