Eid’s Five

If you missed last year’s things to do in Eid Egyptian style, here it is.

Since Eid is coinciding with a Friday this year here’s another five things to do this year.

  1. Play cards with your friends and family.  I know it is not really Eidish, but it seems like a fun thing to do instead of even attempting to go out.
  2. Grab a Wii, Playstation or something and have a tournament.  See if you can get grandma to play too.
  3. Have a barbecue.  Invite people and see who can come up with the best kofta or whatever recipe.
  4. Do not complain about Eid el La7ma.  First you should be grateful that you can eat la7ma whenever you like and second that people around you are not poor and beyedba7o weywaza3o we rabena yekatar we yerzo2 el kol.
  5. Talk about good stuff.  No complaining about a certain event that took place last week or any week for that matter.  Don’t talk about prices that are going through the roof.  Think about the happy memories and good things.

I am posting this early because I wanted to wish everyone a happy Eid before everyone disappeared.

Eid Sa3eed and have a great holiday.
