Sunday Poser # 7

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

  2. I love Christmas as long as Hubby and I are together. I loved doing the Santa run on Christmas Eve when my nieces were small, then coming home, closing the door and shutting the world out.
    No small kids or Santa run now, but we have parcels and goodies to mark the day.

    1. This is absolutely beautiful! May you both spend lots and lots of Christmases together. Love the idea of Christmas run. Must try it when the COVID restrictions are over. Thanks for sharing your thoughts


  3. I had a great Christmas planned with lots of family members joining me over several days. The presents are wrapped and sitting beneath the Christmas tree. Yesterday morning I did an enormous food and drink shop then at 4 pm yesterday afternoon the government locked us down with a ban on all mixing indoors. So, it’s a home-alone Christmas for me this year and we’ll be having a delayed celebration as soon as we are set free again!

    1. I am sorry that all your plans had to be shelved. It is a bummer. But it is better to be safe and healthy. I hope that when you do get together with all the family, itโ€™s a great party.

  4. Since both Daughters usually work the holidays, I’m not sure if we’ll do Christmas on the 25th or a different day.
    Older and I will wrap all the presents after Ben is in bed. Then we’ll go to bed and hope he sleeps in. Whenever he gets up he’ll open his presents and the rest of the day will just be a normal day.
    Younger and Partner will probably come by, but maybe not.๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
    Holidays aren’t a big deal. We enjoy any time we have together and give gifts throughout the year.๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ’•

  5. What I love the most of this time of year is that the pace slows down a bit. Though I am always aware of my pace today, and I do slow myself down as needed, the slowness of the holiday times was/is something I truly cherish. Of course, I also love to be with my family, near and afar. Appreciate the prompt, Sadje.๐Ÿ™

  6. I love watching the Christmas season through the eyes of children. When my daughter was little seeing the excitement in her eyes was wonderful. Now it is some grand nieces and nephew who bring the childlike wonder to the day… unfortunately this year the larger family gathering was cancelled due to covid. In a few years it will be time to see it in a grandchild’s eyes I hope.
