Ramadan is officially over in most parts in the world, and millions of Muslims will be celebrating the ‘Eid festival tomorrow morning.
This will be Eryn’s second ‘Eid al-Fitr, or the celebration of the fast. She was only a few weeks old in this picture — yawning away while everyone prayed. As I mentioned in a previous post, we named her after a gate of heaven that opens specifically for those who fast, so I expect Ramadan to always be an extra special holiday for her.
Like last year, we’ll be going to the Canadian National Exhibition for the Eid prayer. Along with 20,000 other Muslims, vendors, bouncy castles, carnival games, clowns, face painting, movies and most importantly, food!
It’s been an amazing Ramadan — I’m sad to see it go but am pretty chuffed that for the first time ever, I don’t have any fasts to make up!
I’ll be updating shortly with pictures from tomorrow, and Saturday, when we’re hosting an all-day brunch with pancakes, crepes (strawberry, chocolate and sugar), halaal frankfurters, hash browns, waffles (oooh, with strawberries and cool wHip), wild salmon, boccocini and tomatoes, chocolate and plain croissants, and strawberry short cake! It’s an open house, so if you’re in the area, feel free to drop by.
May God accept everyone’s fasts, good deeds, prayers, and other forms of worship the wold over.
