Travels

“The sky was clear – remarkably clear – and the twinkling of all the stars seemed to be but throbs of one body, timed by a common pulse.” Far From the Madding Crowd.

Well, it’s not Eid yet, which means it will probably be Eid announced tonight. Regardless, we have five days off of school so we’re going traveling! I’ll be incommunicado for those days, but hopefully will have much to post about when I return.

I do have to say I’d rather be here in this country waiting for Eid celebrations than in the US waiting for that crazy preacher in Florida to burn the Qur’an on Eid.

Eid Saeed! (Happy Eid!)

  1. Happy Eid to you too!

  2. What is Eid?

  3. I just looked up Eid on google and this is what it says:

    Eid, is a three-day Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). Eid is an Arabic word meaning “festivity”, while Fiṭr means “conclusion of the fast”; and so the holiday celebrates the conclusion of the thirty days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.

    • Perfect! Sorry I didn’t reply earlier, I was on the road when I saw your comment before. It’s a really festive holiday, there are lots of traditions of visiting all of your family on Eid, eating a lot, being generally happy!
