|This is how I looked #ootd|
fter 2 months of Eid Ul Fitr , which comes after Ramazan & 30 days of fasting , we had another Eid named Eid Ul Azha. This Eid is one where we slaughter animals like cows , following a tradition.
"It honors the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his promised son, Ishmael (Ismail)a, as an act of submission to God's command, before God then intervened to provide Abraham with a lamb to sacrifice instead." - WIKIPEDIA
This Eid has an even more diversed background that I couldn't put it all here. So I borrowed what Wikipedia has to offer. Thanks dude.
I , surprisingly , woke up far earlier than I am used to on this Eid day. Nayy , the credit still goes to Amma Jaan who happened to wake up way earlier. I don't know how moms have that capability , like following alarms and being perfectly on time. I can never do that. Or I suppose so.
|umm.. I do have a good looking family.|
Animals that were about to slaughter from my family included a cow (cute but terrifying one) and 2 billy goats. One of them was certainly adorable but another one was scary with those long and pointed horns. Horns terrify the crap out of me so I stayed away from it , ALL THE TIME.
My favorite thing was to get dressed up (of course!!!) and do my make up and stuff. Aww I sound typically mean here. But but I love to do that. Okay.LoadingEid ul Azha is nearrrrr! This glorious "janwar" was not in mood to strike a pose ANYHOW. I somehow managed to have a photo taken (thanks @ohareeba ) . No worries dude, I can't wait to enjoy tikkas and biryanis off that flesh.
After a traditional family gathering , there was tons of meat to take care of. It's mainly a "elders" thing but I kept an eye on what they were doing. So basically , the quantity of meat , no matter how much is that, will be divided into three parts.
1- For your own family
2- For your relatives & friends
3- For needy / poor people who can't afford a Qurbani
|Areeba has the cutest pose evaaaaa|
First day is lazy , especially for those kind of people , who have nothing to do with work. Like me. Whoops. So I spent the rest of day watching Teen Wolf , some classic fairy tales and played xbox , wild tennis shots. RAWR! I love playing kinect tennis. As I win 90% of 'em. No , I certainly have no idea because I was a crappy player in real life tennis events. This is the main reason why I love gadgets.
2nd & 3rd day was about FOOOOD, haha! There was a lot to eat. Biryani , Qorma , Qeema , different kind of curries , tikkas. I lost my counting. Thumbs down.
There are so many B.B.Qs I need to attend. And I will do it with responsibility. C'mon , it only comes once a year and... *insert another lame reason to attend a BBQ party*
How was your Eid (if you celebrated)?
