'Ashenda' is a distinctive and captivating cultural holiday celebrated in the region of Tigray. The term 'Ashenda' signifies a tall grass measuring between 80 and 90 centimeters. During this occasion, young girls adorn themselves with 'Ashenda' around their waist and their exquisite traditional attire. This festivity takes place in August, following the conclusion of a two-week-long fasting period known as 'filseta.' The celebration unfolds as groups of girls and young women traverse their neighborhoods, rhythmically beating drums and serenading with a medley of traditional songs. In Houston, the event is organized by the local Tigray community and has been celebrated with great enthusiasm in either August or September in recent years
