Eid for us this year was very different to our usual celebrations. Traditionally, the men of the house will go to say the Eid prayer in the morning. On their return, we then open presents, before going to visit family and having a feast of food, which is made up of different curries and rice dishes.
This Year, due to lockdown, we all said the Eid Prayer together at home. We then prepared the food for the day which consisted of traditional party food. Sandwiches, cocktail sausages, cheese and pineapple on sticks etc. Sofia and Ayden preferred this, as they do not eat curry or anything with a bit of spice to it!
After this we were able to do presents. Instead of having to rush off out after, it was nice to be able to relax and home, so that Sofia and Ayden could play with their new toys.
Sofia also had some mendi put onto her hands and foot. This is another Eid tradition that Sofia always looks forward too!
