Another COVID Eid
We're just winding up a few days break for an important festival, Eid-ul-Adha. This is one of the two Eid festivals observed by Muslims, with the first one marking the end of Ramadan. Just like Eid-Ul-Fitr, this Eid requires a great amount of preparation and planning to ensure that it is unforgettable. After all, it is known as Bari Eid in our part of the world for a reason!
It is has been another odd Eid since we are still in the middle of a pandemic and social distancing is a priority. I know I know; Eid is all about family and friends, but safety is of the utmost importance. After all, wearing a mask protects not just you, but those around you as well. So, I urge you to wash your hands and continue being careful - we can see it's working because cases in Pakistan are on the decline and that's been worth celebrating this Eid!
For most of us, a big portion of this holiday revolves around food. Whether it’s just your family or one or two of your closest friends, having the best food on the table is a must!
Pictured above are the wax wraps and ceramic bowls that I purchased from the Polly estore just before Eid…and that I absolutely adore.
Leftovers are also a huge part of Eid (or any food related event for that matter) and these wax wraps are perfect to help store them. You know you love those late-night meals! And since sustainability is and should be a key consideration for all of us right now, these wax wraps are not only chic but are also reusable. I got a pack of each size and to my pleasant surprise, all the patterns were fun and different. They are a definite five-star product! I am nothing but satisfied, especially since I get to use them already this weekend.
And don’t forget those gorgeous ceramic bowls. Look at that detail and color! I am such a fan of handmade art and I plan to get more because just four of these are certainly not enough. They are durable, food safe and the colours are so vibrant, they will surely brighten up your dinner table. They certainly did for me this Eid!
