Hari Raya Puasa

Today – Tuesday August 30th – is Hari Raya Puasa.  This means it is a public holiday in Singapore.

It is the celebration for the end of Ramadan – the Islamic month of fasting.  You can check Wiki out for more information.

  1. Selamat Hari Raya! My tummy still hurts from celebrating hari raya in Malaysia more than ten years ago. I’ve never eaten so much food in one day! Enjoy, it’s a wonderful celebration.

  2. I saw some v sweet children out and about today all dressed up with their mums dressed in trad Islamic gear. I asked if they had been somewhere special and they said “to a celebration”. I am now feeling both woefully ignorant and a little sad that they didn’t just say it was the end of Ramadan. Enjoy the feasting!

Anything to add? I love to hear your thoughts!
