Spring Holidays

Spring Holidays

Are you observing any religious or spiritual holidays this spring, like Ramadan, Passover or Easter? If so, how do you and your family celebrate? Why is this tradition meaningful to you?

Pictured above, we see the final preparations for an evening meal to break the Ramadan fast by migrants in Brooklyn. Have you ever fasted, for religious or any other reason? What was the experience like? What, if anything, did you learn from it? What food did you have when your fast was over?

Tell us in the comments, then read the related article to learn more about how migrants from Sudan and West Africa are celebrating Ramadan and energizing a Brooklyn neighborhood’s Muslim community.
