Each year, I approach Ramadan with fear and apprehension. I have had some great Ramadans in my life. Ramadans in which tears flowed freely during prayer, where I felt a close connection to God and my fellow human beings, where the fasts meant so much more than hunger and thirst.
This year, I really wanted to get in the spirit of Ramadan. Here are some of the things we did to make our month festive and special. I hope you all had a great Ramadan!
|Jasmine plant that we put our presents under.|
|Chocolate covered dates.|
|Favors for kids who came to the iftaars.|
|Favors for the adults. Date scones. Nomnom.|
|Lots of time with those we love.|
