argue that henna has been used for at least 5,000
years in both cosmetic and healing capacities. Henna
has been used for centuries for body decoration. Ancient
Egyptians used henna prior to mummification.
Cairo, Egypt, for example, many working class citizens
had their hands and feet dipped in henna to produce
a solid covering, which differs from the common decorative
design that is usually applied for weddings and other
time henna has been associated with special celebrations.
Betrothals, weddings, the eighth month of pregnancy,
the birth, the 40th day after a woman gives birth,
naming ceremonies, circumcisions, etc, are all events
celebrated with henna. Eids, and other religious holidays
are also occasions to be hennaed. There are also some
healing ceremonies, like the Zar in North Africa,
which include its use. A common practice seen in India
and in the Islamic world is the pre-wedding tradition
of 'Night of Henna' parties.
skin is not tattooed as the practice does not require
any piercing. Henna paste is a dye that leaves a more
or less durable stain on the outer layer of the skin.
When applied, the henna paste is always black, but
the resulting pattern with natural henna varies from
light orange to dark brown.
makes the dye darker. Black stains are the result
of additional dyes and compounds added to the paste.
The henna stain will last until the top layer of the
skin exfoliates. All skin on the body gradually exfoliates
and is replaced by new skin in 1-12 weeks, depending
on individual factors. The henna, then, will last
as long as 8 weeks on the thick soles of your feet,
or go away as quickly as 3-4 days on very thin parts
of the skin.

Greeks held the first Olympic games in the
year 776 BC (over 2700 years ago)
and had only one event, a sprint (a short
run that was called the "stade").
The race was run by men who competed in
the nude. A wreath of olive branches was
placed on the winner's head, as the olive
tree was the sacred tree of Athens, Greece.
ancient Greeks dedicated the Olympic Games
to the god Zeus. Women were neither allowed
to compete in the games nor to watch them,
because the games were dedicated to Zeus
and were therefore meant for men.
flag of the Olympic Games has five interlocking
rings (blue, yellow, black, green, and red)
on a white background. The rings represent
the five parts of the world that were joined
together in the Olympic movement: Africa,
the Americas, Asia, Australia and Europe.
de Frédy, Baron de Coubertin (1863-1937),
a French educator and sportsman, designed
the flag of the Olympics in 1913-1914.
Olympic flag was first used in the 1920
Olympic Games in Antwerp, Belgium. The Olympic
flag is paraded during the opening ceremony
of each Olympic Games. At the end of an
Olympics, the mayor of the host-city presents
the flag to the mayor of the next host-city.
The flag will remain in the town hall of
the next host-city until the next Olympic
Games, four years later.
The tradition of the Olympic flame began
during the ancient Olympic Games. A flame
was lit for each Olympics and burned throughout
the games. The flame symbolized the death
and rebirth of Greek heroes. There was no
torch relay in the ancient Olympics. The
first torch relay occured at the 1936 games
in Berlin, Germany.
For each Olympics, a new flame is started
in the ancient Olympic stadium in Olympia,
Elis, Greece, using a parabolic mirror to
focus the rays of the Sun. This flame begins
its Olympic Torch Relay by touring Greece.
The flame is then carried around the country
where the games are to be held, using a
series of torches carried by people running,
walking, riding horses and camels, scuba
diving, and using other means of human conveyance.
The last runner uses a torch to light the
large Olympic torch which burns throughout
the games. The flame is extinguished during
the closing ceremony. A new Olympic torch
is designed for each of the games.
Olympic motto is, "Citius, Altius,
Fortius", which means "Swifter,
