Chand Raat tonight?
The world over, Muslims are celebrating Eid today but we here in Pakistan still have a day (or two) to go. To start off the festivities the Government of Pakistan has declared a public holiday from today Oct 23rd – Oct 25 i.e Monday to Wednesday treating us with a nice long weekend. It may appear that the bureaucracy is pushing for Eid on Tuesday after having observed only 29 rozas, but as we all wonder, what if the chand is spotted on Tuesday for an Eid on Wednesday. Will people head to the office on the 2nd day of Eid *bummer* ….. The usual tale of Eid confusion for us Pakistanis… LOL
The question I ask today is.. What do you do on Chaand Raat? If you go out where is the most happening place around town. A request to all our readers, take tons of Chaand Rat pictures and email them over to me at drawab at Gmail dot com for a photo-post on the happenings of chaand raat (attribution will be provided)
