"The guest" is arriving tomorrow, at least in Sweden. As every year, we find some countries fasting on one day, and some on another day. Apparently in Sweden the bosnian/turkish community started fasting today (Friday), and the rest tomorrow on Saturday. My husband's Bosnian grandma reacted to us fasting tomorrow instead of today by saying: "Oh you are following the kurds!"
Not quite sure what that meant :)
Either way, it will be a challenging fast for us northerners. Starting the fast at 3.38 am and ending it at 8.26 pm is not exactly a walk in the park...more like a hike in the mountains!
Still, as has famously been pointed out many times before; where there is a will there is a way! And a will there is!
This year will be my first Ramadan as a mom. I am not quite sure how it will affect things... also it is the first Ramadan my husband and I will spend in our own home. I am curious to see what kind of traditions he will bring to the table with his Bosnian heritage!
Will keep you all posted. But for now, I wish all of you out there a blessed and joyous month of fasting and self-improvement, God willing.
