The end of Ramadan

Another blessed month of Ramadan is drawing to a close. It has been a good month of fasting and prayer, visits to the mosque for Iftaar and dinner. The new moon has been sighted in Saudi Arabia, so our mosque has announced that tomorrow will be the first day of Shawal, or Eid-al-Fitr.

Last night we went for dinner and our Chaand Raat celebration. Safa took her friend Anna with her, and they both got a chance to have henna applied on their hands. It's a very popular Eid tradition, and the girls love it. It ended up being a late night for them, but was worth it.


Tomorrow the kids will stay out of school. We'll start the day of festivities with a trip to the Sheraton for Eid prayers, followed by a carnival, and a pot luck dinner with friends.
