A couple months ago, I blogged about Ramadan and Eid ul-Fitr, a month of fasting followed by a huge festival celebrated by Muslims. Well today, I'm going to be blogging about Eid ul-Adha, the second festival Muslims celebrate.
This celebration, also called the Festival of the Sacrifice, is celebrated to honor the willingness of our prophets to sacrifice for God. In this month of the lunar calendar, Muslims from all over the world make a pilgrimage to the Holy Kabbah in Mecca called Hajj. The end of this pilgrimage marks the day of Eid, on which families distribute meat to the needy, friends, and family. Of course, the coming of this holiday also means dressing well, partying, and eating even better.
This Eid ul-Adha 2014, I've teamed up with my bff and blogger buddy, Rubina at All Floured Up, and my talented sister, Mehwish at My Slice of Pizza, to bring to you a unique menu from all around the world.
So get ready for a week full of great traditional recipes and menu inspiration that will put anyone into the Eid spirit!
