Happy Eid!

To all Cape Breton Muslims, happy Eid!

My new friend Aleena, who is originally from Pakistan, told me about Eid and how it is a festival that her family celebrates. (It’s pronounced “eed,” by the way.)

There are two Eids, actually. One is called Eid al-Fitr and one is called Eid al-Adha. The first one is the lesser Eid and takes place in August. The second one is the greater Eid and takes place now. (Well, it started on Friday.)

Anyway, my point is, to all Cape Breton Muslims, who may have moved here from another land, I’m so very glad you’re here. May you have a happy time celebrating with your families!
