Eid Mubarak!

Here in Pakistan, we celebrated Eid yesterday. Eid came upon us in a sudden, dramatic manner when Pakistan's moon-sighting authority announced the sighting of Eid moon at around 10:45 pm, after intial reports to the contrary. So, we who were mentally prepared for a 30-day Ramadan, were suddenly thurst into Chand Raat (night of the moon). We were up till 2 am with the Eid preparations. I put some henna design on my hand.

Eid was/is great fun. After the Eid prayer, morning was spent doing the Eid cooking etc,while the rest of the day was spent in visiting relatives and wishing friends and family a happy Eid. Kids had a wonderful time. They got a lot of toys and eidee (money) and spent the day playing and having fun. They got two additional sets of Eid clothes from their grandmas, (so my daughter got to wore these, she will wear the ones I made for her today,inshaAllah).


  1. Eid Mubarak! How beautiful your children look!

  2. Eid Mubarak! Does that mean, "Happy Eid"? I hope your celebration has, indeed, been a happy one. I admit, I know nothing of this holiday except what I am (happily) learning from you, but it sounds like a wonderful family time. Your children are so adorable! I do hope they get to wear the lovely clothes you made them.
