Today is the last day of ! Woke up the whole family for pre-dawn breakfast (most days it's just been me and Eldest Son), and now there's only 11 hours until sunset and the start of Eid ul-Fitr, the Feast of Celebration.


Normally, we'd go to the mosque tomorrow morning, say prayers with a few hundred other people, and spend the day visiting family. Of course every household will have cooked and will insist you eat a full meal, so any weight you lost while fasting comes right back. :)

This year, we'll pray at home, eat at home, and call all the family members by phone. Not the same, and not nearly as fun, but it will still be a holiday and a celebration.
