Just wanted to recognize our Muslim brothers and sisters on the board as you go through the sacrifices of Ramadan. Good luck and take care of yourselves, particularly in the warmer climates - it must be a very long day!

    Nice post, often :)

    I heard mubarak many a time growing up, though through a different culture, different religion.

    Still, I can relate in ways...we're really not all that different, I believe.

    Despite (or because of?) the fasting, may it be a rewarding and collective time.

    And Eid Mubarak tomorrow. I had a knock on the door at home last night. When I opened the door, two cute younger kids and their dad were on my porch wishing me a happy Eid and offering a nice little bag of sweets. I talked to them for a while. They've lived down the street for a couple of years, but I hadn't met them. So we chatted about Eid, and about giving gifts of sweets to celebrate the breaking of their fast. One of the kids said he'd be going to school on Friday and then coming home and partying. It was a nice little visit with neighbors I'd never met, I learned something new and I was glad for the experience.

    I have no idea what Ramadan Mubarak is but I'm open to being educated.  I could cheat and Google it but would rather here from someone here.  Teach me!

    It’s a greeting that wishes the recipient a blessed Ramadan. Ramadan ends tomorrow, I believe (was supposed to end today but the lunar calendar can be a tricky one). Ramadan is the time of fasting and abstention between sunrise and sunset, and can be pretty challenging in more northern areas because a June day is so darn long.
