Eid al-Adha 2011 - Henna Fun

We had great fun last night with our first family chand raat (night before Eid) celebration.  Technically, it was two nights before Eid, but we fugured everyone would be busy tomorrow night.  We swapped "Secret Mullah" presents (thanks girls!), got our henna done, ate pizza and watched old wedding video's (one from 20 years ago, one from 15 years ago and one from 12 years ago - mine).  The videos were great fun and we even caught two aunties fighting on the oldest one and me punching my brother!

Sis-in-law turned out to be a bit of a whizz with the henna and Fashionista's efforts were rather lovely as well.


  1. MashaAllah! Beautiful henna designs.

  2. Wow!!! I hope you don't mind, but I am going to plagiarize one of these for my own henna tonight :-)

  3. Assalam-alaikam,
