Today is the second day of Eid or Ramadan Festival or Festival of Sweets as we call it here. After the Ramadan,- a month of fasting- is over, there are three days of vacation. Traditionally we visit elder family members and relatives. We bring sweets as gift, and they offer us candies and some other traditional sweets, mainly baklava..As you can imagine this is the favorite festival for kids as they are ''eat as much candy as you can'' days for them. These are the days parents are a bit tolarable to candy consumption of kids. It is also customary to offer some small gifs to children. When I was a child handkerchiefs were popular gifts, but I loved receiving money where I could spend whatever I want later. So remembering those days I like to give small amounts of money to kids. As for the grown ups, this year I am offering almond paste and home made cherry liqueur.
