So although Eid was officially pushed back until Friday..my employer was kind enough to give us Thursday off..How generous of him..a gesture truly in the spirit of Ramadan.
Hope some of you got the day off as well! I have to say, it was my first time experiencing the uncertainty that comes with “officially” announcing Eid, or any holiday for that matter..
“What do you mean you aren’t sure when the holiday falls? They just wait until the last minute to announce it? What if people want to make plans with their families?” I would ask..
“Well some people wait to see the moon, while others go by the calendar, and yet others wait for the offical word from Mecca..It’s just the way it is..just be thankful that you got the day off!” they would tell me..
And I am thankful..for everything in my life!
Eid Mubarak everyone!
