The "Hand of Fatima", also called "Kamsa" (bunch of fives or hand) - the most common means of protection. "Hand of Fatima" worn as a pendant or charm.

Images of fish and ram's horns, safety symbols used even puniytsy. However, today they are often seen on the lintel of the door. Many older women applied henna marks on the body that protect against spoilage.

An important event in the life of every Muslim is circumcision, which makes boys aged 5 to 7 years. In Tunisia, the enlightened this operation produce doctors, it is traditionally served barbers.

Modern wedding ceremony largely follows the western fashion. White wedding dress and veil - a secret dream of all young girls. But in families that are committed to tradition, the bride prepare for the rite, in accordance with ancient custom. In the hammam, the public bath, the bride wash, remove hair from the body, massage, applied henna image and good fortune with many good advice prepared for the wedding night. This is followed by a ritual farewell bride's father's house, and she entered into the house of her husband. Custom expectations sheets with evidence of innocence is preserved only in the outback.
