Abstract

Ais says that for any mother the happiest and most awaited moment in their lives is when their sons get married. According to Kalmyk tradition, the parents of the bride bring her white trousers with fur balls dangling which symbolizes a well-wish that her family lives in prosperity, happiness, and fertility. Sometimes the trousers have a special pocket. At the wedding ceremony the mother of the groom puts on the trousers and dances in front of guests who put money into the pocket.
