Eid Al-Fitr in Oman, 2014

The authors of this blog have written about Eid customs and what Eid-al-fitr is before on this blog. See this post for details: http://howtolivelikeanomaniprincess.blogspot.com/2011/08/eid-ul-fitr-3-days-after-ramadaan-what.html.
Also, our own photographs and stories of previous Eids are contained in these posts:
There are probably more but I am feeling lazy today, personally. I am also feeling lazy to narrate my last Eid, but needless to say, it consisted of the usual: getting up before sunrise, dressing in new clothes, shaking numerous hands, eating harees, children collecting candies, toys, and Eidyia, my husband shooting his rifle on the roof to make all the women jump in the afternoon, eating far too much beef and goat in the form of Omani shuwa and mishakeek and visiting all our relatives (which means, eating far too many chocolates, and dying of fruit, nut, and caffiene overload). All in all, I had a good time this year, managed somehow to relax and find a few moments of privacy (which are rare during Eids). Instead of a long-winded explaination of the abbreviated but aforementioned events, I'll leave you instead with my random photos;). InshaAllah, enjoy:
