Eid-ul-Fitr fell on July 17th for us Muslims in the United States. Here’s a photo story of what ours looked like this year.
Getting all the gifts/goodie bags ready the night before Eid // Rushed Eid morning with a quick breakfast followed by giving Anya her Eid gift (I took her to Target and let her choose her own this year, and told her she’d get it on Eid day) and a quick Skype with her khala and baray nana.
Followed by a day full of Eid gatherings Alhamdulllilah. Above photos from the gift exchange for kids at the Eid Chai at one of our friend’s place. We tried doing our own version of Secret Santa as there were a lot of kid to do gifts for and it worked pretty okay! Photos, thanks to my friend Nabila.
My husband wanted us to pick some flowers for Eid so we stopped over at our local U-Pick flowers location and made ourselves a beautiful bouquet.
Dropped over to our neighbors to give them a little Eid gift along with a card that we do ever year!
And Anya’s Eid Cards for our family this year 🙂
Hope your Eid was extra special too!
Thanks for reading. Lots of love.
