Most of the people know about Christmas or Hanukah. I actually become more aware of Hanukah after I moved to New York. Still I am not fully knowledgeable about it.
I am pretty sure you have no idea what the Eid is? Also called Feast of Breaking the Fast, the Sugar Feast, Bayram (Bajram), the Sweet Festival is celebrated by muslim people at the end of the day of Holy Ramadan. And today is the third and the last day of this years’ Eid.
Most of the muslim people fast during the Ramadan. Fasting lasts from sunrise to sunset for whole month (29 or30 days). The main idea of fasting is understand people who are without any food. But in the background you also learn how to control your willpower and be come more patience for problems.
At the end of the Ramadan people celebrate Ramadan for 3 days. Relatives visit each other, celebrate the festival all together. Eid’s traditional food is most of the time sugary pastry, candy or Turkish delight. Which why my favorite festival in religious practise. Desserts!!! Yayy!
Today I share to you my Eid look! I prefer to wear something looks like rose delight.
Unfortunately I get some weight because of late dinner and sahur during the Ramadan. I start immediately my jogging session at the park on Monday. I already lost 1 pound! 🙂
Once one of my friends (who is not Muslim and never fast in her life) fasted for a day, just wanted to try it to understand feeling. If you want to learn more about Eid just google it or send me an e-mail. Perhaps we can fast one day together for the next summer.
