Welcome everyone back to my blog, and late Eid Mubarak to all who celebrate. As we know Eid al Fitr was on Thursday, and it was just the best. So today I wanted to share with you a little bit about what I did on Eid and the outfits I wore on that day.
My day started bright and early at 7 am, I didn’t go back to sleep after Fajr. We had plenty to do in the morning and Eid salah was early that day. My mother and I was up and about getting the food ready for us and for the party happening somewhere.
Per usual we were running late for Eid salah. I didn’t have enough time to actually get dressed in my Eid outfit so I had to opt for an Abaya. Luckily my mother had a pretty abaya she bought for me when she went to Makkah. I love the white 3D floral embroidery on the abaya, I popped on a quick hijab and we left. My brothers and father left before us, and my sister was getting dressed as well.
After returning home we continued on cooking and finished up. Plenty of Vimto was drunk on that day, if you know you know. 🙂 We had a quick visit from my older sister and she went on her way to my uncle’s house. We were meant to go there as well, but it would’ve been too late when we were going to return. So we stayed home had some pizza and watched plenty of TV.
We also took our Eid photos as a family, and I changed into my original Eid outfit. This yellow Bazin is a traditional type of west African clothing that is worn on occasions. During Ramadan we were discussing what we wanted for our bazins. My other uncle was in Africa getting our bazins. Alhamdulillah, we got beautiful bazins this year. My sister went for blue, I went for yellow, and my brothers went for, purple, green, and blue. There was a lot of blue this year.
But the best part might’ve been the nap I took. After that we just rested and ate the rest of the day. Since Eid al Fitr is after Ramadan most people must’ve been tired. Eid al Adha might be a bit more better If Allah Wills. That’s all for today’s post everyone, thank you so much for joining me today. Salam!
