Thoughts about circumcision are very different in Turkey from Sweden. In Sweden it's regarded as mutilation, while in Turkey it was originally made because of religion but now of health reasons, because it prevent sexually transmittable deceases.

In Turkey is the circumcision connected to a big party and the boys goes to people the family knows to recieve presents and money. According to tradition they also wear beautiful costumes that makes them look like princes.
