November - Give Thanks!

Today, I am thankful for other cultures. I am grateful that we are able to learn more about one another.

Tomorrow begins a three day holiday for one of my Muslim students. He shared with me a little bit about what the holiday means for him.

Here is what wikipedia has to say:
Id ul-Adha (‘Īdu l-’Aḍḥā)
Official nameArabic: عيد الأضحى
‘Īdu l-’Aḍḥā
Also calledFestival of Sacrifice,
Sacrifice Feast
SignificanceCommemoration of Ibrahim's (Abraham's) willingness to sacrifice his eldest son Ishmaelin obedience to a command from Allah - and Ishmael's acceptance of this command.
Marks the end of the Pilgrimage to sundown, and ask God for forgiveness.
