Happy Eid – Long Eared Goats

My husband took me to the largest Bird and Animal Souk/Market in Jeddah.  It is far south (we live north), so it was a bit of a trek to get there.  But it was definitely worth the long drive.  The souk has areas designated for different types of animals – all kinds of birds, rabbits, goats and lambs, and cows and camels.  There was especially an abundance of thousands of goats and lambs because today is a religious holiday called Eid al Adha – marking the celebration of the end of the annual pilgrimmage Hajj.  Traditionally families celebrate by sharing food with others, and a favorite is lamb and goat. 

Wishing my Muslim friends around the world a Happy Eid!
