Bakrid also known as Eid Ul Adha, festival of the Muslims was celebrated quite recently in and around India, the festival of sacrifice, which is because of the commemoration of Abraham's willingness to offer up his only son Ishmael. Being a converted Muslim myself, it was even in my family(in laws) that celebrated with our loved ones, with prayers, good will and distribution of the sacrificed meat to relatives, neighbours and the poor. The meat of camels, goats or cows are sacrificed on this day and divided into three parts of which one part will be kept for the family, the other for relatives and friends, and third for the poor. The festival is celebrated for continuous four days and the slaughter can take part any hour after prayers to the lord. Sweet dishes are also distributed among the neighbours, apart from the meat. Delicious dishes are prepared and families celebrate with great happiness.

It has been 9 long years and not only post marriage, have i been part of these festivals since my childhood, and my heart buries into the whole ceremony of any festival, be it at Christmas(Christian festival) or Id(Muslim festival), Durga Puja or Diwali(Hindu festival). I enjoy every festival from the core of my heart.

I am indeed, very lucky to be able to be a part of any festival, not everyone gets the chance. My kids are also lucky too and they love celebrating all the festivals just like their mom:) On this note, i would like to wish everyone happy holidays and joyous Christmas shopping!

    I am celebrating my Eid'ul Adha just in a moderate mood. We gather as a family and have a nice meal. In certain part of Malaysia, they are celebrating it much merrier than us, I am in the southern part and we are more participate in Eid'ul Fitr :):)

    It's still a nice celebration though. We share our wealth with others who less fortunate :D
