I look forward to celebrate holy month of Ramadan since the time I was a kid. I love getting up in the morning to have quick meal before sunrise which is called as seher…..to performing namaz to reciting Quran to get involved in the preparations of iftaar which means the end of the fast. In between the day I liked to soak up with other activities like shopping and preparing meals to end the fast. It’s always fun to shop during Ramadan……choosing clothes to gifts to food, making semiya (hah…still some people make semiya at home and some by from the store as they are readily available) and to select menu for everyday meal for seher and iftaar and in between attending and hosting iftaar parties is all fun filled time…..being involved in so many activities time just fly by and within no time Eid will be round the corner.
This fun has doubled when I started Ramadan event for the first time in my blog. Being newbie in the blogging world, my efforts paid off when I got tremendous response for the event which I happily named as Joy From Fasting To Feasting. I thank each one of you for being there constantly supporting me and encouraging me with kind words and sending your huge love in the form of posts/recipes/comments.
