1. You wake up to rusty crusties - mehndi (heena) all up in yo bed sheets.
2. You also wake up to hearing the blaring sound of Eid celebrations coming from your parents favorite motherland channels
3. It’s a battle with your siblings to be the first one to get your shower on.
4. Your mom calls you over to eat sheer kurma (or a sweet treat from your motherland) but there’s that momentary hesitation because you still think you’re fasting.
5. The struggle for sawaab is real; you’re going to be the first one to read naray throughout your car ride
6. When you arrive at the Mosque, there’s no parking, so you’re forced to double park – because you refuse to park across the street.
7. Oiy, if you're late, you have to politely nudge your way into the line for namaaz (prayers).
8. If you’re not able to read namaaz, best not get too comfy in that seat at the back!
9. You’re blinded by the light! After prayers end you can see that everyone’s decked out in their finest garments
10. Gotchya! Gotta be the first with the: one, two, three standard Salaam hug Eid greeting.
11. It doesn't exactly feel like Eid unless you see those pretty greens.
12. There’s always the awkward moment when you are given a gift by an unexpected gifter.
13. As you go to grab your gifts from the car, don’t forget the chance of catching a glimpse of the the opposite gender.
14. You think you’ve seen a ghost, the one-timers make a special appearance.
15. Expecting one thing from your Eidee and getting another when you get home and open it up.
16. The Almighty, family, friends, sacrifice, gifts, random Mosque peeps, food and blessings – truly these are the things that remind us of the essence of the holy month.
