Welcome to the 7th week of Sunday Poser
This week share with us what is the thing you love/ like the best about Christmas/ Hanukkah/ any other religious/ cultural festival that you celebrate?
Being a Muslim, I don’t celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah but I celebrate Eid. Eid falls on a different date each year as it is determined by the lunar calendar. What I love about Eid is that it is a family festival. All my children and their families come over to our home and we have a family meal together.
There is a tradition of giving Eidi to the younger generation, like kids and grandchildren. Eidi is usually given as cash and then people buy whatever they want with it. The younger generation usually give presents as Eidi to their elders.
When I was young, I used to look forward to Eid and getting Eidi from my father, grandparents, uncles, and aunts. At the end of the day, we would count the money and make plans on how to spend it.
Please do share your favorite thing about the coming festival season.
Thanks for reading
