Eid Mubarak to Our Readers

Eid al-Fitr, more commonly referred to as Eid, is the 3 day long celebration that marks the end of Ramadan and the start of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic calendar. Eid is a time for food, celebration and family, and although every family has their own way of celebrating Eid, there are a few aspects of the festival that pop up in every household's celebration. In Canada, Eid will be celebrated on July 17th this year! Eid starts off bright and early for families, as they take part in numerous activities to celebrate the end of the fasting period. The day usually begins with families attending their local mosque to take part in special prayer ceremonies. Fashion is at its prime during Eid, as worshippers dress up in their best clothes to celebrate. Bright colours, costume jewellery, and intricate designs are prominent during Eid, and fashion followers love to find ways to mix and match the latest trends into their outfits. Many people also celebrate Eid by giving back to the community. Many worshippers also take this time to remember the less fortunate. Families often donate food and other items to local charities, as a way of giving thanks during the festivities. We wish all of our readers happy feasting, and a grand Eid Mubarak!
