Thursday morning

Today is the 30th day of Ramadan, which means Eid begins tomorrow.

I had intended to follow that sentence with a comma (which, you are right to note, would have left it as a clause and not a sentence) and the words ‘which means the mister does not get a day off work’. Just in time, I realised that was a fairly disrespectful and narrow way to look at an event which means a lot of things to a lot of people.

I shall live through these days in the same way as I do Easter or Christmas. That is, events which mean a lot more to some people than they do to me, but are, nonetheless, opportunities to reflect a bit on life and all its wonders.
