This year’s Eid celebration is a little different because of the current situation. Visiting one another is a little tricky this year, but here at HalalTrip and CrescentRating, we make it work!
For the past few months, we have been diligently working from home. As Ramadan comes to an end, we have always wondered how we could send our greetings and wishes to everyone this coming Eid.
As a team, all of us came up with an idea to record an Eid greeting video through an online platform, Zoom. We had set a date to record this Eid greeting video and gave out instructions beforehand to brief everyone on their respective roles. We decided to record this video while wearing our traditional Eid outfits, each of us wearing bright colors, in order to set the festive mood. One of our colleagues suggested using green packets as a prop, as well as to prepare markers and papers to form the words “Eid Mubarak.”
When it came to the recording date, all of us came prepared before our laptops, donning our traditional Eid outfits and holding a green packet each.
The process of filming was not easy. Since we were all recording in our respective homes, we had to find ways to coordinate our actions. This took many tries; we made a lot of mistakes, including uncoordinated hand movements when “passing” the green packet.
But eventually, we made it work!
This year’s Eid would be remembered by many as a very unique one because of the current situation. We feel the same way too as there were many things that had to be done differently. But we have found a way to make things work, so we believe you could do it too.
Visiting one another on this very special occasion may be a little tricky due to the current situation, but we found a way to make it work! May Allah bring you joy, happiness, peace, and prosperity during this blessed occasion. We at HalalTrip and CrescentRating wish you a very Happy Eid!
