Eid Said!

 Yes, yes, again.... Eid Said! No it is not end of Ramadan again, but another big religious feast, where the tradition is to slaughter a sheep or a cow, if one can affoard it, and distribute the meat to the poor neighbours. This tradition comes from the story in the Coran (similar in the Bible as well), where God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son as proof of his faith, but the story has a happy ending as in the last minute the son is replaced by a sheep.

Happy feast to all Moslems and the ones having the chance to celebrate along ;-)
