Today is the last day of Ramadan. As I mentioned in my earlier post, it’s a great opportunity to introduce children to different cultures, religions and traditions. Over 1 billion people celebrate Ramadan and the month-long fast. Today is Eid al-Fitr, the end of the fasting. If you are not a practicing Muslim, your child will have many questions about Islam, why do they fast? why do they cover their heads? Talk to them and answer their questions. The Washington Post has a beautiful front page photo today of children marking the end of Ramadan.
