Eid Plans

So I was going to have a Eid party for the kids and some friends on the second or third day of Eid, but the guest list got too long for my apartment. My friend and I decided we'd put together party bags and take the kids out instead. Yea it might be crowded during Eid but not as crowded as it would be in my apt.

This will make it way easier on me. No decorating, baking, clean up and all of that and I feel kinda guilty that this makes me happy, but it will be for the better. Plus the kids will have more room to run around and play inshaAllah.

The important thing is the a good time is had by all and the kids feel that Eid is fun and important.

So what's everyone doing for Eid (iA)?

  1. Hey Mona,
    I found your blog thru my friend Sara's blog and I'm really enjoying reading about your adventures with your kids (who are all adorable!) and living in Egypt. I just have one quick question for you... What is Eid? Forgive this non-muslim, but i'm curious and I wish I could come to the party (especially since its cold here in Philadelphia and it sounds warm in Egypt!)!
    Thanks,
    Regina

  3. Hi Regina, any friend of Sara's is friend of mine. Eid is our holiday, we have 2. One after Ramadan, the month of fasting is over, which is Eid el Fitr(feast)and the one next week which is Eid al Adha. (sacrifice) It's harder to explain but here's a short description.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eid_al-Adha

    Hijabee, yea can you believe it's almost 2009!?
