I"ve done plenty of dorm parties and they're absolutely the best!
You'll have a blast!

For the Christians .... Armenian Christians still do henna for
weddings. Coptic Christians still do henna for weddings. Henna was a
part of the original Easter celebrations, as demonstrated by a
tapestry in the Cleveland Museum 5th century, showing Christians
raising hennaed hands at their Easter celebration. Henna was used by
Spanish Christian women until the Spanish inquisition knocked it out.
Women wore henna to mass in 12th century Sicily. Henna is not, not,
NOT owned by any one religious group. Henna is a social and family
thing, though it is used in holidays that also have religious
significance (like Fir Trees aren't Christian though they're used at
Christman). Shall I go on?
