Eid as you are, Eid as you can.

As I often viewed myself speaking to a wider range of audiences, I always ended up searching for the very word or term that I am already in-tuned with, and sometimes, even the very festival I used to grow up with.

Eid. In my mother-tongue language, Bahasa Melayu, it goes with the customary greeting of “Selamat Hari Raya.” As Eid, in Arabic, simply means, festival or holiday. It can even be Eid Halloween (Eid al-Qadiseena) if you wish.

And especially for Eid al-Fitr, a festival to mark the end of the fast of Ramadan, celebrated by Muslims around the world; which apparently, is more traditional than a religious one.This year, we celebrated it with a difference; we conjoin it with our neighbors and friends of different backgrounds. Well, it actually kicked of since last year; where we celebrated it with non-Muslims and Muslims Singaporeans alike. While in London, “This is the way of life.”

For just being able to celebrate it together.
