Our Eid al-Adha

Eid gifts with home made gift tags

we even decorated the plants


Kuku and Bobo busy unwrapping their presents

Our Eid was lovely,with all the family gathered here at the big house. There was alot of food, mainly very large trays of meat and rice, breakfasts of liver and kidneys, halawa tahinia, jam, olives, pickles and arabic flatbread accompanied with milky mint tea. And of course cakes, sweetmeats, dates, biscuits, chocolates, sweets, mint tea, Arabic coffee in endless rounds spread over three days. We were all dressed up in new clothes and sitting around chatting while guests came and went and children ran around playing and eating far too many sweets!. We danced, laughed, and called loved ones far away.
