We are half-way through Ramadan 2016, and like many, we are starting to see the light of Eid at the end of the road. While some are beginning their holiday shopping, others prefer to stick to giving “old faithful” – cash (otherwise known as Eidi, given to children and women at the end of Ramadan for Eid.)
If you are searching for fun ways to pass out the dough, here are seven festive ways to give Eidi this holiday.
