Eed Sa'id ....

Hello friends ..
Ramadan will end after few days … & after that the Muslims
will celebrate" Eed al-Fotr" .. in eed we wear new clothes & visit our friends,& relatives ….
The great news are , I will go to Baghdad in eed, that means I will meet Hassan , Najma, Raghda , Dalia , Kais , & Hnk ( we are all relatives& of course bloggers).
I am so excited , We didn't celebrate in the last two eeds ,we had bad time in these Eeds ,I wrote posts about that " leaving the home " & " at relative's house" . But this eed I will have fun ( In- shalla) , I have many relatives in Baghdad I'll see them all this eed ( can't wait).
The most important tradition in eed that all the family (close relatives ) , uncles , aunts , grandparents , grandchildren etc celebrate to gather in the first day of eed in the house of the oldest family member, then they spend the other days of eed with friends ,neighbors & the rest of family ..
In Baghdad we will spend the first days of eed In my parents' uncle house, we will be about 30 person & may be more , we will have lunch there ,of course" Dolma" will be the main dish (Humm)…. ..
I like the family meeting, the family here is very important..
The other thing we are used to have as a tradition is that, the parents give their children presents , candies & money we call it "Eddia"….
I used to find my present near my bed when I wake up in the morning …
This will be the first Eed without my aunt Rose. Hope she will be with us next eed.….
I will go to Baghdad on Monday & be back on Saturday …
Wish me a safe happy trip …
Eed sa'id every one ( merry feast ) ….
Sunshine …

You're a very nice writer for a young lady, so keep it up. I read your Aunt Rose's Blog and then found her Link to your site.
It is more than sixty years since I was in your region, to Khorramshahr, Iran, so I know a little bit about it.

Take care, and my best wishes for you and your family, and relatives. Enjoy your Holidays, safely.

Be safe, Sunshine, and have lots of fun. Omar, at ITM, introduced you to lots of new friends.

My mother's middle name is Sunshine, so I'm sure you will become a favorite blog of mine to read.

When you come back, maybe you could tell us what is in the dish you mentioned that is so yummy.

Dear Sunshine,
Have a marvelous Eid! I pray for your safety there and back and everyday.

In case you do not see your other post which Omar recommended, I would like to link you to my blogroll.

BTW, when you say dolma, do mean rice, meat, and vegetables rolled into a leaf or cabbage? I love the yulonchi! (I am Armenian.) Have a wonderful time.

Viagra is a drug that is prescribed for a very fragile disease like erectile dysfunction. Hence people prefer to go for this drug after going through the viagra info sites. In these sites people get all the information required and related to the drug.
