Celebrated in the remembrance of prophet Ibrahim’s readiness to sacrifice his son Ismail to Allah as an act of submission to God’s command, here are the 8 mainstream things that are certain to happen on Eid.
- BARBECUES OVER SHEER KORMAS
We are more than ever jittered for barbecues than the mandatory sheer kormas on eid.
- KOILA CHAI
Having a whole damn barbecue and making the tea separately on stove? Eh.. Honey why not just brew it on the coal. Experience the blend of mesmerizing aroma and spellbind taste that energizes your eyes giving you the stamina to face the cruel world! A rare opportunity after all.
- PAJAMAS OVER EID DRESS
Waking up earlier and leaving to witness the sight of sacrifices, who wears the lavish eid dress just to get it red stained in blood? Hail pajamas.
- VIDEOGRAPHING SKILLS
Aaah..Eventually the time when everyone can reveal their video graphing skills by recording the dynamic sacrifices ever and also the fragile girls screaming in the background. LOL
- UNENDING KHANDANI DAWATEIN
Bakra eid means barbecues, biryanis, gola kabab, seekh kababs, kheer, mithayian and of course rishte daars for the upcoming months!
- THE FAILED ESCAPE
A blissful episode of harmony in our lives; meet ups, cuisines, holidays. Eid ul azha is indeed, rectitude!
