عيد مبارك

Published: Sunday, May 24th 2020

Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating the end of Ramadan today. Or as my fiancée would say, jazhntan pirozbet. Had she not been part of my life, I’m sad to say I would probably have no idea that some 20% of the world’s population is celebrating today. But now I do :).

Given that some 7% (ish) of the Swedish population was actually born in a country where it’s common to celebrate Eid, it’s a bit strange that not a single word about this holiday is mentioned on our national public service news.

Maybe next time.
