Sharing my world- 27 November’ 22

Thanks Di for continuing to host Share your world

Note: for my readers who do not celebrate Christmas, please consider family traditions for other occasions like birthdays (as my response is later) or festivals, celebrations or special occasions in your own country.


1.Do you have any family traditions?

We celebrate Eid twice during the Islamic year. On Eid-ul-Fitr, which is at the end of the month of Ramadan we have different traditions. We give each other gifts or gift money called Eidi. The children often get Eidi from their parents, grandparents, uncles, and aunts. It’s not uncommon for them to have accumulated quite a good amount of money on Eid-up-fitr. There is a tradition of inviting family over for a meal and often extended family is invited too.

2. With December on its way, have you ever been carol singing?

Nopes, never done that.

3. Do you decorate your home for the Christmas holidays?

On Eid, we clean our home and perhaps get a bouquet of flowers but no other decorations are done. However if it’s a child’s birthday, the parents usually make an effort to set a theme for the party and decorate accordingly.

4. Do you enjoy the Christmas rush for preparations and shopping?

As I mentioned earlier, Eid is after a month-long fasting of Ramadan. The most exciting thing about is that we can eat whenever we want. When I was younger I used to make a lot of effort for the Eid lunch. But now I’m more relaxed.


Our weather has finally turned a bit cooler. I enjoy snuggling into my blanket at night. There are flowers on my Clerodendrum vines

    1. You’re welcome! Yes, it’s quite common that we know all about the dominant culture, that’s western culture through movies and television shows but you wouldn’t because there isn’t much exposure of our culture.

  1. What an interesting post. I’m putting my Christmas decorations up today, a bit early but why not? When my brothers and I were kids my parents would put up the tree and decorations on Christmas Eve after we had gone to bed and we didn’t see them until after breakfast on the big day!
