Eid Kabir (Al-Adha) 2015

WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS VIDEO OF SLAUGHTERED AND GUTTED SHEEP.

I observed this Muslim Holiday with my host family in Morocco. I filmed the part that most Americans are interested to see. There is also a lot of socializing and eating with family and friends.

This holiday commemorates Ibrahim’s (Abraham) willingness to sacrifice his son to God. This festival also marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. Eid al-Adha is a time for wishing one another well. Many Muslims in the United States celebrate Eid al-Adha with prayers and social gatherings.

Tr3mendous Love,

Renee
