Eid and Guns

So I went to pray Eid-ul-Fitr at the State Fair grounds as it is capable of providing enough space for everyone. This being a Sunday also meant that the State Fair is also home to our local flea market on the weekends. It just so happens that this particular weekend there is a “Military Antique Guns and Collectors” show right next to the building where over 7,000 terrorist-looking people and their children have come to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Call me schizophrenic nomad but I know certain things just don’t mix – not after 9/11. Good thing the prayer was over by 10am, before the concession stands were opened for alcohol serving with lots of fire arm around.

Eid Mubarak ya’ll.

Eid Mubarak Ya’ll!

It turns out my prediction of divided end to Ramadan somehow came true. It was the first time ever that most Muslim countries started this month together, which seemed would end the same way. Half of my family did not fast on Tuesday while the other half did. Our next door city made their Eid prayer on Tuesday while our city celebrated on Wednesday. As my friend would say, you gotta love the Muslims!

If you celebrated on Tuesday or Wednesday, Happy Eid anyway! And keep of the weight.
