Hey Seahawks! Did you know that last Friday was Eid? Eid al-Fitr is an Islamic festival which is celebrated by millions of Muslims around the world. It marks the end of Ramadan, the holy month of fasting when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk each day. “Eid al-Fitr” sums up the holiday fast, as it is translated from Arabic as “festival of breaking the fast”. On this day, Muslims can eat during the daylight hours after fasting during Ramadan. Eid al-Fitr features three days of celebrations that include special morning prayers. People greet each other with “Eid Mubatak”, meaning “blessed Eid” and with formal embraces. Sweet dishes are prepared at home and gifts are given to children and to those in need. In addition, Muslims are encouraged to forgive and seek forgiveness.

The Multicultural Club will be hosting an Eid celebration on Friday after school in the cafeteria for staff and students. Join us for fun activities and prizes, free food, and learn about Eid!
