July 4, 2016
LAHORE (92 News) – Muslims across the country are preparing to celebrate the Eidul Fitr, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramazan. Even the scorching heat could not dampen spirit of festival shoppers as people rushed to city markets to make purchases for the forthcoming Eidul Fitr. From clothes, accessories, kids wear, home decor, utensils to mobile phones and LCDs, shoppers were seen busy making purchases. With Eid still a few days away, some people were also seen purchasing mutton and bakery products well in advance. The Eidul Fitr will be celebrated on Wednesday July 6 or Thursday July 7 depending on the sighting of moon, announcing the beginning of the month as per the Islamic lunar month. The Eid preparations for girls are not just about a new Eid dress and shoes for them. They need to have new jewellery, accessories, handbags, bangles, cosmetics, mehndi and God knows what else! Then, they often have a separate dress for each of the three days of Eid and they then spend considerable time in deciding on what to wear on which day.
