I did put up a christmas tree and I've ordered neon signs for the stores for next eid.
Hopefully it will encourage neighbouring shops.
I am so sorry I never came across any decoration of Islamic theme tree..because as far as I believe there is no such concept in Islam...anyways if you are seriously on this..you could probably help the poor people, Charity for students or families who can't effort to buy a book!!! I guess this idea would make you feel more proud and happy. Puttig smiles on faces is nothing but the Chrismtas or Eid celebration. I don't have idea about people in Qatar, yeah I had been their for short time, but doesn't know much about the poority level in DOha?? Any thoughts????
do different themes..might have doves...stars...bows...straw ornaments..my favorite, but can't do it since they are all back home, is my childrens's hand made ornaments that I've collected since they were old enough to squeeze a glue bottle. Not the prettiest tree but certainly the most meaningful because as you pull out each ornament, you remember when it was given..even tho the glitter is falling off and the angel's wings are crooked..
who are Muslims...and there are lots of things I can collect over the year to decorate with...should be as much fun as trying to find Christmas ornaments!!
but...you may help me..any ideas??
Hey do you know few Islamic themes to decorate a tree???
I have been very surprised to see so many Christmas trees here..personally, I would have liked to see more Eid decorations...
As for my Christmas tree...its stays like it always has(had enough trouble getting it up and working!! Had two strands of lights on it, multi colored and within an hour..top half of the tree was blinking blue and yellow and bottom half was red and green..lol)....Next year tho am going to have two trees...one for Christmas and one decorated with a more Islamic theme. Have to admit that trying to find Christmas things was a challenge, but a fun one.
Blessed Eid and a Merry Christmas everyone!
Since for the last couple of years I have seen both the holidays live together.It doesn't mean that priority should give only to one festive..anyways What Amnesia said is right and Scarlett your idea is great to make yourself satisfied and happy on the ocassion, do the same.....
should be about the reason for the season, either and both of them...why can't both holidays live in harmony together? And Diamondgirl is right..why not put up a tree with a cresent on it, amnesia?? Actually I've seen several ornaments that have that...
It's all about $$$$...So don't feel it so bad....Advance Eid Mubarak....:-)))
You could do that yourself Amnesia :)
Happy National Day. Yallah Gitar!_______________________________________________________
