Ramadan and Eid ul Adha 2013

Each year, I approach Ramadan with fear and apprehension. I have had some great Ramadans in my life. Ramadans in which tears flowed freely during prayer, where I felt a close connection to God and my fellow human beings, where the fasts meant so much more than hunger and thirst.
This year, I really wanted to get in the spirit of Ramadan. Here are some of the things we did to make our month festive and special. I hope you all had a great Ramadan!

“Ramadan lights”
Jasmine plant that we put our presents under. 

Star lanterns.
Chocolate covered dates. 
Favors for kids who came to the iftaars.
Favors for the adults. Date scones. Nomnom.

Lots of time with those we love.
