Getting ready for Eid involves the following for us:
- Baking cookies (Double Chocolate, Ma’moul, Ghrybe, and Naankhatie);
- Making the traditional Indian mithais like burfee and ras malai;
- Cleaning the house till it sparkles (hopefully!);
- Sewing something nice to wear (inshaAllah!);
Eid will be on a Sunday for us (I know some are doing it on Saturday), so at least nobody will be working or going to school, and inshallah we should be able to have some family and/or friends bonding time.
What are your plans for Eid? Especially you people abroad…look forward to hearing your Eid stories! 🙂
