Finally, after several days of trying and failing, I have good enough internet to post my Idul Fitri photos! I took these when I went with my family to the Idul Fitri morning prayer service at the neighborhood mosque.
The girls and women at the mosque getting ready for the special Idul Fitri service
Bags of food to give to the poor
Everyone from the neighborhood came for the most important holiday of the year!
Happy children in bright, shiny (new?) clothes
This little girl who looks like a cross between a pumpkin and a ghost (Halloween, anyone?) loves to yell, “MISS SARAH!” every time she sees me
Neighborhood boys messing around like usual and trying to hang off the flag
My shy little neighbor girl
Oops, looking the wrong way
What an awesome Strawberry Shortcake jilbab. If I had been a Muslim child I would have LOVED that.
I’m sure for this little boy it was much more interesting to watch me than watch everyone praying 🙂
I'm Sarah and I like many things starting with the letter "S," including (but not limited to) Seattle, springtime, summer, sunshine, swimming, sunrises, surprises, and sociology. For anything else you want to know, you will have to read my blog!
