Eid, X-mas, Hannunkka, Soltice and New Year wishes



The last quarter of the year 2007 was packed full of all sorts of celebrations. First we had Eid el Kabir for Muslims and then came along the Christmas which normally coincides with the solstice (when the sun is farthest from the equator) and then comes the Hannukka (a Jewish festival). And all these within a space of one month. I want to believe that as humans we all celebrated these occasions. And as if that was not enough, we first had a new year according to the liturgical calendar and another one soon according to the Hijra calendar.
So here is a belated wish to all my readers for a happy Sallah, merry Christmas, light filled solstice, happy hannunkka and a prosperous 2008 and 1328.

Update: I have been corrected with regard to the Islamic year (1328) which I quoted above. Correction accepted as the year is actually 1429 and my thanks to Big Abdul.

Hajia,

The new Islamic year is 1429 AH and not 1328 as stated in your write-up. All the same, we (your readers) wish you a very prosperous new year full of love, happiness and good health.

Hajia, more ink to your pen
 
Hajia: Belated season's greetings! Haven't seen you in a while.
