I forgot to tell you this, but two weeks ago was Eid al-Fitr. I'll tell you what I did.

My family woke up pretty early. Since I usually wake up early, I don't have a problem with it. We got dressed up to go to the mosque, where we spent a lot of the day. I'm close with the imam, who is actually quite friendly. The prayers were in Arabic, like they usually are.

Dinner was pretty big too. We had so much food. I think I overdosed on the chicken, since my brother said there wasn't much left for him. My sister's fiance came over too. His parents were there as well, and they discussed the wedding quite a bit. (The wedding is next week!)

The best part was the gifts. I don't really ask for much, but I get a lot. I got plenty of candy - which I always get. It was the nice kind that you get in candy stores, although I did get some gummi candies from my paternal grandparents. The best thing, though, was new bedding from my maternal grandmother. The sheets and pillowcase are mint green, and the blanket is dark green with a floral pattern. I needed new bedding for a while, and I was so glad to get it. My parents put it on right before I went to bed. I slept very well that night.

    Don't you have water or dates to break the fast at the beginning of the meal? Somebody told me that was the tradition.

    @UnovaCastaway; Yes, it is the tradition of eating dates, three to be exact, to break the fast. Also, I'm sure you know this, Eid is the festive after ramadan so he doesn't need to fast anymore.
