Prepping for ‘Eid-al-Fitr

August 25, 2008

Well, Ramadhan is in a week! I can’t believe it.

For the past few years I’ve been telling myself that I will be ready for ‘Eid before Ramadhan even starts: presents bought/made and wrapped, decorations organized and accessible, ‘Eid clothes bought/made.

Well, um, it looks like that isn’t going to happen.

I did just order ‘eid dresses for my girls, because I’ve accepted that I have too much going on right now to have time to make dresses.  I stocked up on wrapping paper and decorations last year, so it’s just a matter of getting everything together. So to be ready for ‘Eid I need to:

1. Buy/make presents

2. wrap presents

3. Buy clothes for my boys

4. Make sure my girls have accessories (barrettes, tights, shoes, etc.)

5. Plan menus for ‘eid brunch and dinner

That doesn’t sound too bad.  Usually I just do gifts for my household and my immediate family, but I think this year I’d like to give some small tokens to friends and associates as well.

Wish me luck!
