It’s difficult to feel festive on Eid when the society you live in is not celebrating. It is the first Eid my husband and I are not in big family gatherings. A good friend of mine once said: Sometimes you have to create yourself the things that are missing (love to the inspiring Kübra Gümüsay). So, we created our own big “family” gathering. We invited 26 friends for a Eid-Dinner-Party, we cooked for them (challenge accepted), decorated the house and prepared some games. It was a lovely evening. Connecting people and making them feel welcome makes me deeply happy. And I started collecting our Eid decorations for the next Eids zu come, inshallah. So that we make them as festive as we can.
