Eid attempt

7 Sep

I always wonder way is the western world so festive about their holidays compared to us. As kids, our eid was all about wearing new clothes and collecting “3eedya” – money treats – and  at the end of the day me and my cousins would all go to Toy Town and play there. happy times 😀

This is a very cute ad from NBK about “3eedyas”

Now that we’re all grown up, frankly new clothes and family gatherings arent cheerful enough. its just like any other family gatherings except that we say “Eid mobarak” and thats it. and it really bugs me! We have only two Islamic eids and they are nothing to look forward too.

So i have an attempt this year. I decided to start new happy traditions. You know, something to look forward too. First we’re gonna wake up early at 6 am and go to the mosque for Eid prayer (this is gonna be very hard since our Ramadan sleeping pattern is messed up)

Second im gonna get a big festive breakfast: doughnuts, pancakes, arabic coffee and maamoul. This should be nice after a month of  fasting.

Thats all i could think of, lets see how it goes.

Oh and kl 3aam winto bkheeir 😛
