Today is Idul Fitri, a yearly celebration in the Muslim religion, of the so-called victory over lust, sin and other human drives after a 30-day fast. Technically you’re supposed to not eat and drink from dawn to dusk, but a good fast would be avoiding other human drives like sexual drives, bitching, cursing and everything else that’s fun.
As usual, after the Ied prayer in the morning, we get together with the rest of the extended family, and fill our stomaches to the limit with anything on the table. There are some traditional dishes, but usually it varies from region to region anyway. The most important thing is to gather with family, and to forgive each other for whatever wrongdoings or sins that happened the year past.
Let’s take a look at what I mentioned last year on this event. Things never really do change, eh?
Today, I am trying to swallow my pride, and forgive someone I’m not quite ready to forgive yet.
So help me God.
