Use the card to cut out little moons and stars and use some string to hand them from the ceiling or some tape to stick them to the wall. They would make the most perfect little accents in your family photographs this Eid.

3. Preparing the feast

After a long month of fasting, on Eid, a large spread of food is needed to enjoy and eat as much as you like. 


Spend locally this Eid by buying from your local market, your local butcher, deli or greengrocer to ensure you get the freshest and best locally produced items. 


Of course flavours are everything, so have a look at the selections you can find - our top pick is this amazing selection of spices all ready for you to make the best Indian mutton curry https://www.shoplocalonline.org/afribox/taste-of-africa-durban-indian-mutton-curry-spice/

Eid is a big feast. With lots of little snacks and treats being prepared, one item which is always made in my household is spicy chicken samosas. They go perfectly with a steaming hot cup of masala chai. Give it a go and try making some. You wont regret it!
