E I D ° M U B A R A K
When did Eid get so stressful? With a menu to sort out weeks in advance, coordinated clothes last minute, Eid gifts to sought , decorations to scramble together, instagrammable food layouts, selfies, nails, henna did I miss something?
The men 'Hunter gatherers' do all the shopping to last a month. While the women 'nurturers of food is love', slave away in the kitchen for hours on end sleeping in the wee hours. Wake up before crack of dawn, be alert and attentive, to families kids and endless guests needs, host from morning till night and always keep a smile plastered on your face. Eid is joyous when you're not hosting.
Honestly I dread Eid because of all of the above. As a guest spare a thought for your host. Keep it short and simple and help out where you can as best you can.
May Allah make it easy on us.
