Things Fall Apart Chapter 12
The next day the town was festive because Obierika's future son-in-law was to bring palm wine for all of Obierika's kinsmen and the bride's mother was cooking a great feast, as was the custom. Okonkwo's wives were to help prepare the feast, and Ekwefi and Ezinma were among them despite the late night they had spent. Okonkwo was also tired because, although no one knew it, he had gone to the shrine of the Oracle four times before Chielo and Ezinma had returned there.
That night there was a great feast to celebrate the marriage and everyone in the village was happy.
