My 3 year old son came home from school today excitedly saying, “Mommy Mommy I saw a Horoof at school today!” Eid al Adha is approaching and this is when Muslims sacrifice a lamb. Tuesday is the last day of school before the two week Eid Break. The school sent a note home saying that they will have ‘Hajj Day’ at school Tuesday and the kids will learn the significance of Hajj and Eid and will also eat lamb and rice. A little boy in KG2 was over here playing with my son and told us that the two Horoof at school today would be slaughtered and ate tomorrow!

Hope it doesn’t traumatise the wittle ones.
