This ancient ceremony is one of the most popular festivals in Uzbekistan. It is a great holiday for every family in Uzbekistan. All relatives, neighbors and family friends are involved in the preparation to the festival.
Normally it is celebrated on the fortieth day after birthday of a child. Parents and relatives of the young mother bring “beshik” - cradle, clothes, gifts, sweets, toys, and a lot of necessary things for a newborn child.
Traditionally, elder women carry on the rite of first swaddling and placing the child into the “beshik” (cradle). At the end of the ceremony the guests enter the room of the newborn to give a glance and make presents.
