Eid and Rosh Hashanah

Eid Mubarak and Shanah Tovah!

Here in Atlanta, Eid is today. We wish everyone a very happy Eid. Eid Mubarak to you!

The Jewish new year started at sundown last night. So Eid and Rosh Hashanah are on the same day. Shanah Tovah, everyone!

Christmas

Since the Kid is three now, she’s enjoying Christmas and so are we. Merry Christmas, everyone!

It’s Christmas Eve.

We have had Christmas lights outside our home since December 4. Michelle had demanded lights as she saw them in the neighborhood. So I told her we would decorate for Hanukkah, and so we did on the first day of Hanukkah.

Michelle has also asked that she get candies from Santa Klaus on Christmas. Every day at her preschool, she stopped at the Christmas tree and spent some time looking at all the decorations.

In short, this is our first fun Christmas, despite the long discussion the lady who cut my hair had with me a couple of weeks ago in favor of Merry Christmas and against Happy Holidays. Personally, I prefer Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

رمضان اور روش ہشانا مبارک

آج سے روزے شروع ہو گئے ہیں۔ رمضان مبارک۔ اور روش ہشانا یعنی نیا سال بھی مبارک۔

آج یہاں پہلا روزہ تھا۔ آپ سب کو رمضان مبارک ہو۔

ساتھ ہی آج عبرانی کیلنڈر کے نئے سال کا آغاز ہوا۔ آپ کو روش ہشانا بھی مبارک ہو۔ Shana Tova!

Happy Easter and Hag Sameach

A Happy Easter to all my readers. And a Happy Passover too.

Today is Good Friday. So a Happy Easter to all my readers.

And sorry I am late. Passover started at sunset on April 2, but it is a week long holiday. So a Happy Passover too.
