Ramadan Journal 2013: Day 28 – Tradition

Sorting all the gifts to give I have accumulated through the year
Making Eid cards and Eid decorations
Taking mum and mum-in-law shopping to choose a gift from myself and hubby.
Matching bangles to Little Lady’s outfit
Picking a gift for myself  from my other half
Waiting till the kids are asleep to put the balloons and decorations up.
Making the 4-hour kheer (rice pudding) my in-laws love
Making fairy cakes with Little Lady on Eid morning.
Looking like a mess when hubby goes to masjid for Eid prayer and then getting everyone dressed up before he gets back.
Making jelly for Little Man on Eid.
Going to mum’s for Eid lunch (the best meal of the year).

Spending the afternoon watching movies with the kids and my sisters.

What are your traditions at this time of year?

Silver and garnet ring I picked for my Eid gift this year.  What do you think?  I liked this so much that I am tempted to source some for our shop.
