The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in changes in a lot of things. Nothing is the same as it used to be & while we are adapting to this new normal there are a lot of things we are missing. Social distancing is the need of the hour, we have to follow it & celebrate our festivals. Eid-ul-Fitr is here & due to lockdowns & pandemic situation, celebrating the festival like we have always been, gone years, is not possible. Visiting mosques to offer prayers, meeting & hugging friends and family to extend the greetings, wont be possible this year.
But here's how you can celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr in the grandest way possible in our homes during lockdown.
1. Dress Up:
Get up early, freshen up & dive into your favorite dress & matching accessories to get into the feel of the festival. Click photos with family & share it using social media or messaging apps to other family members & have them send photos of the moments of, how they are celebrating Eid in lockdown period.
2. Cook Eid Delicacies:
Sheer Khurma, Khubaani ka Meetha, Kimami Sewaiyan, Kheer, Haleem & Mutton Khorma are some of the popular dishes of the festive. While everyone cannot not afford, the complete delicacy list as there's confinement of the lockdown & people don't have access to every ingredient required to cook these. But we can always enjoy & be happy in whatever the best we can cook to celebrate.
3. Connect With Dear Ones Over Calls:
Amidst this pandemic situation & ongoing nationwide lockdown, it is impossible to gather at family places to meet & celebrate together but you can utilize technology to come close & greet your dear ones, relatives & friends. Connect with relatives staying in India or abroad using meeting apps or conference video calls. Wish them & indulge in some fun activities like playing games and singing songs.
4. Send Gifts:
Now, when there have been some relaxations for eCommerce companies to deliver essential & non-essential goods, you can arrange for a gift to your dear ones to keep the tradition of Eidi going.
5. Donate For A Cause:
Eid is the festival of giving. This year the world is going through one of the worst crisis mankind has ever faced. On the pious occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, you can donate something to people in need. After all, there is no bigger joy than bringing a smile on someone’s face on the holy occasion.
