Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى ‘Īd ul-’Aḍḥā) or the Festival of Sacrifice is a religious festival celebrated by Muslims (including Druze) worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ishmael as an act of obedience to God. The devil tempted Ibrahim by saying he should disobey God and spare his son. As Ibrahim was about to sacrifice his son, God intervened and instead provided a lamb as the sacrifice. This is why today all over the world Muslims who have the means to, sacrifice an animal (usually a goat or a sheep), as a reminder of Ibrahim's obedience to God. The meat is then shared out with family, friends (Muslims or non-Muslims), as well as the poor members of the community.

Eid al-Adha is the latter of two Eid festivals celebrated by Muslims, whose basis comes from the Quran.[1] (Muslims in Iran celebrate a third, non-denominational Eid.) Like Eid el-Fitr, Eid al-Adha begins with a short prayer followed by a sermon (khuṭba).

Eid al-Adha annually falls on the 10th day of the month of Dhul Hijja (ذو الحجة) of the lunar Islamic calendar. The festivities last for three days or more depending on the country. Eid al-Adha occurs the day after the pilgrims conducting Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide, descend from Mount Arafat. It happens to be approximately 70 days after the end of the month of Ramadan.

Acest Eid al-Adha este un fel de Craciun al nostru, si am simtit pe pielea mea cum se sarbatoreste. Daca mi-am inchipuit vreo clipa ca in week-end restaurantul nostru a fost full, m-am inselat...pentru ca ce a urmat luni, cu ocazia acestei sarbatori, este peste puterea mea de inchipuire...

Imi parea rau ca nu am aparatul foto...am vazut niste rochii de am murit, si costume traditionale, si rochii d-alea de indience, sclipitoare, si pline de brizbriz-uri, si pantofiori stralucitori si in fel si chip,...veselie multa, lume de te calcai pe picioare si doar 4 chelneri....hahaha.... asa ca am avut de tras....Nebunia a inceput pe la 7 seara si s-a mai domolit pe la 4 dimineata, dar in tot timpul asta a fost flux continuu...

Dar o experienta frumoasa, si atata ne-am holbat la aceasta parada a modei, ca nici nu stiu cand a trecut timpul...

O sa tin minte ziua asta cate zile oi mai avea... si pentru ca a fost ceva inedit, dar si pentru ca am facut 112 lire tipsuri...pe care din pacate a trebuit sa-i predau mai departe...ihhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Cam asta a fost penultima mea zi de lucru...

Asteptam cu interes pe ultima!! Oac oac
