Eid stamp(Eid blessings).

Today is the first day after Ramadan, known as the Eid-al-Fitr, one of the two main Islamic holidays (the other being the Eid-al-Kabir which celebrates Abraham’s sacrifice and occurs after the yearly Hajj pilgrimage).

The month of Ramadan is the one in which the Quran was revealed, and after a month of fasting, muslims emerge with a newly refreshed appreciation for God’s gifts of food and drink (remarkably similar, in fact, to the American holiday of Thanksgiving).

My best wishes on this festive occasion and may you find peace and joy, wherever you are.
