Eid Mubarak

Eid as always started with chand raat (the eve of Eid). Moon was sighted early in the evening so we could get busy with our henna and bangles.

For once the kids were excited about their bedtime as it mean time for henna, LOL. As you can see, car was a popular theme with them.

My henna design flopped this year as I was unoriginal and tried to copy a pattern out of our living room rug onto my hand.
The Eid day started bright and early with the father-son duo going for Eid prayers.

And after that we were ready to receive and visit family and friends.
The kids had a happy and fun-filled Eid, going to bed exhausted around midnight. And we still have two more days of the same! Hope everyone had a wonderful time!


  1. Eid mubarak! The kids looks so grown up this year, I can barely stand it!

  2. I think your hand looks lovely. I haven't done henna in so long. It does keep you from knitting for a while! Eid sounds like such a fun holiday. Enjoy the rest of it!

  3. A lovely family! Can the kids use the camera and take a picture of Mom and Dad?

    I hope you all enjoy the rest of the holidays :)

  4. Eid Mubarak from France!I visit your blog quite often not only because you're a knitting expert but also because it has this little thing that other "knitting blogs" don't have...the Muslim touch!
    Take care. (Sophie/Saliha)

  5. Umme, your work is impressive! Thanks for sharing so many patterns.

  6. Iyi Bayramlar Umme Hanim. Well that's Eid Murbarak in Turkish. I love the new clothes your husband and son are wearing. I loved Seker Bayram (Eid) in Ankara, all the kids would come door to door looking for sweets/candy. It was such a happy time.

  7. Your hand looks wonderful. Enjoy your holiday!

  8. henna design I think is lovely :)
