Eid Mubarak

According to the wikipedia, the phrase Eid Mubarak (Arabicعيد مبارك‎, Hindi: ईद मुबारक Persian/Urdu: عید مُبارک, Malayalam: ഈദ്‌ മുബാറക്‌, Bengali: ঈদ মুবারক) is a traditional Muslim greeting reserved for use on the festivals of Eid ul-Adha and Eid ul-Fitr. The phrase translates into English as “blessed festival”, and can be paraphrased as “may you enjoy a blessed festival” (Eid refers to the occasion itself, and Mubarak means “Blessed”)

After a whole month of communal fasting and breaking of fast, many ties are forged, some old ones strengthened, some new ones developing. There is something special about the community spirit in doing things. Struggling together. Enjoying the specially prepared food as one. Rubbing sleepy eyes and grumbly tummies are somehow more bearable when you know another person nearby  is going through the same emotions….

But all that is coming to an end now.

After this period, it is celebration time!! Eid Mubarak!
