      1 more day of fasting today for Ramadan here.  Tomorrow is the start of Eid al-Fitr.  Eid al-Fitr goes for 3 days, and we do not fast during any Eid period.  It is common to give and receive presents during Eid.

        That is cool. If you don’t mind my asking what kind of presents? I find different cultures, and religions very fascinating 🙂 I like to learn more when I can.

          Basically, the same kind as you do on Christmas.  It’s just on different days…or, once in a great while, on the same day.  Our calendar has 12 months, but, it is a lunar one, so the years are about 10 or so days shorter than the Gregorian calendar, so every year, the month of Ramadan starts a bit earlier.  We fast for the month of Ramadan…so by sunset we are usually quite hungry.  Also, our days start at sunset instead of midnight.  Therefore, tonight, at sunset, it will be Eid, and we will have one last iftar (breaking the fast).  During Ramadan, a lot of Muslims are up all night, and sleep in the morning, especially when Ramadan is in the summer.  I know that this is more than you were asking, but, you got some free information.  And, no, we do NOT hate Americans…Well, most of us don’t.  Then there are the extremists…but…I think they hate EVERYBODY!!!

      Carpets?  I don’t have any.  I like tile flooring.  Of course, with 4 cats…carpets probably wouldn’t last long…Although I still have to tile the living room floor…

        My second floor is too uneven for tile or any floating floor… I discovered this the hard way when they came to install my beautiful floors and couldn’t.  So hypoallergenic carpet it is 🙁   And I just ripped up carpet in anticipation of my Pergo…
