Today is Eid al-Adha, or the “Festival of Sacrifice,” for Muslim communities. In Oman this is the biggest holiday of the year, and locals spend the day praying, visiting family and neighbors, and slaughtering goats for the feast. These photos were taken at the Grand Mosque in Muscat – a place that is sure to be pumpin’ today.
I am happy to say that my two goats, Ali BaaBaa and AliMaaMaa, will not be partaking in the festivities. Eid Mubarak!
