Most Muslims around the world celebrated the Eid festival, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, yesterday. The new moon was sighted in Pakistan last night so we are celebrating it today.
The eve of Eid is quite special and large crowds of people can be seen everywhere, shopping and just enjoying with friends and family. We were out and noticed the crowd was much more than usual. Most people posponed this year’s Eid shopping because of the earthquake and only just came out.
Though the situation in the quake-affected regions is still quite bad, let’s hope and pray that they have at least something to be thankful for on this occasion and that it marks a new beginning for everyone. Let it be a sign of better things to come.
