Another year, another Ramadan knocks on our doors. And while the calendar shows that Tuesday, July 9th marks its beginning, higher authorities decreed Wednesday, as the first day. There is always so much unpredictability and anticipation in both its beginning and its end.
This year, JR anxiously awaited Ramadan and looked at the sky for the "Ramadan Moon." When we announced its beginning yesterday, she jumped for joy and instantly asked a myriad of questions about what we were going to do to celebrate it. Seeing that we have a rather small community of friends who celebrates Ramadan our activities were limited to spending time with the family, putting on her new gown, and meeting up with friends to splash in the water. Come to think of it, though, while the festivities were not grand, they were quite fitting: spending time with loved ones doing things we enjoy.
