For some of you who are international students, you will do doubt be finding it difficult to deal with not having your family around. For others you may be going back home for that special time.

But for most of you it is the same old thing with family and friends.

What we like to do is of course go to the Mosque on the morning of Eid, pray and then there is that wonderful time when you can go back to your favourite coffee shop at 10.00am and have that delicious latte that has been sitting there waiting for you for 30 days.

After that there really is a joy in the air. A freedom and an appreciation for all things tasty! I personally never overeat as my stomach just can’t take it, but what we do do is visit friends and relatives and or have them around to our place for dinner that evening or even later.

The celebrating of Eid for me really lasts quite some time, usually about 3-4 weeks because there are so many people to have a coffee with and catch up with having 30 days literally locked in a cupboard…(well that’s me anyway).

So what about you? How do you celebrate Eid wherever you are? Love to hear about that!

  1. Eid Mubarak to you,your family and all your near and dear ones,
    This Eid is special because fasting in hot summer was really challenging and we were strugling to cope with the situation for the last 29 days, it itself is very much an ocasion of happiness to get through the whole month,we offr prayer and then greet each and everyone in the mosque and the family,share eating and drinking soft drinks,coffee and tea etc and elders in the village and family are specially visited,throughout the family people like to get together and celebrate the event,and who knows better than you dear ma’am.

    • Thank you and a big heart felt Eid Mubarak to you! I love that wonderful feeling after the ‘drought’…it is truly a wonderful day in all the ways you mentioned.
