A happy yummy eid

We're donee with Bakra Eid now. For those who have absolutely no clue what is it, it's the second Eid of the Muslim year. It's basically the festival of sacrifice. We sacrifice a sheep or goat or a cow and share the meat with family, friends, neighbors and the poor. We Muslims feel that they have a duty to ensure that all other Muslims can enjoy a meaty meal during this holiday. Bakra Eid: The cost of scarifise.

It all started with finding a cow for us. There are some Bakra Mandis where people sell their animals for Eid. Bakra means Billy Goat in English. Believe me, instead of food, going there is the most fun part. You go there, you see lots of animals, you touch them and feed them some green leaves, skip the wild and bad tempered ones and come back home with your very own cow or a   bakra (Billy Goat) or cow or lamb. Anything you like.



 And finally, the Eid day. I'm honestly not fond of beef at all but Bakra Eid is an exception. We've had a lot of roast and other meat dishes that tasted SO TASTY. My amma cooks really well.
Thanks Natalie for the earrings and bracelet :D

And I was being appreciated for making the most fabulous faces for photographs all the time. I mean, I am getting bored of making the same smiley faces all the time. I need to photobomb some more people, take some cross-eyed selfies and have a good time while taking group photographs.




And that's how how most of our family group photos usually come out.
It was fun. So fun! The bar-b-q night, all the other food, unlimited access to cold drinks, a good time before college starts. Good news is that we just got an xbox 360 right before Eid and I'm learning everything about how to control the Kinect and not to be a noob at it. Andddddd I have a new obsession now called Teen Wolf. I mean, I can't stop watching it. I've completed 2 seasons in less than 2 weeks and I'm terrified that what's gonna happen to me when I'm done with season 4 because there's no new season till 2015. WHAT WILL I DO WITH MY LIFE. I need a whole post to write all about it, yes I do. 

Did you enjoy your Eid time, if you celebrated? Let me know ;)
