Care Home Residents Celebrate Eid

Barchester’s Hugh Myddelton House care home, in Southgate, celebrated the Islamic holiday Eid al-Fitr, which took place on Friday 21th April.

Eid al-Fitr means the feast of the breaking of the fast and traditionally begins the day after the sighting of the new crescent moon which marks the end of Ramadan and the start of the month of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic Hijri calendar.

General Manager, Jade Shea commented: “Eid is such an important event in the Islamic calendar, we all enjoyed watching Eid celebrations around the world and taking part in the ceremonies at our local Mosque.

Dega resident at Hugh Myddelton House said “It was really interesting to find out all about Eid and how it is celebrated. We have people of all religions here and it is wonderful to be able to take part in different religious celebrations.”
