Eid al Fitr 2k17

Eid Mubarak to all of my fellow Muslims out there! I know I am a few days late but I wish you all much success in all of your endeavors!

Okay, so for those of you that aren’t familiar with Eid Al Fitr. It is a Muslim holiday immediately following Ramadan (our holy month of fasting). Eid day starts off with prayer early in the morning. Prayer is usually done at a mosque or at an indoor area that can hold hundreds of people. After the prayer, we visit our families and friends starting with those who recently experienced a death or a difficult time. We spend time with them and try to make them forget about their difficult circumstance. I love this aspect because it is a completely selfless act!

Once we have done that, we spend time with those who are closest to us and eat lots of good food! Since I had to spend this Ramadan and Eid al Fitr away from home, I was fortunate enough to spend it with my Med School Muslim family. We prayed, ate, and laughed.

The earliest Eid memory I have was when I was really young, I was about 4 or 5 years old. My family and I were living in Sudan at that time and there was some Eid Carnival going on. All I know was that I really wanted to ride on a swing because I never rode one before. I drove my mom absolutely crazy during the day until she finally agreed to take me. I was determined to get on that swing and was quite persistent in my nagging lol when I finally got to the swing, I felt like my dream came true LOL

Here’s what I wore to the prayer and lunch for this Eid:
