Handmade greeting card, 'Eid Mubarak'



This beautiful Eid card was handmade by Rida and Hafsa Munir in 2020. Eid al-Fitr, 23-24 May, marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan and is traditionally a time for family get-togethers, prayers and enjoying fabulous food together. However, in 2020, it was celebrated very differently due to the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown. The sisters explain more, "To maintain the essence of Eid, we made cards, bought sweets and distributed them to our neighbours and friends outside their houses. People had been dreading a lockdown Ramadan and Eid thinking they would be ruined but that definitely wasn’t true!” The card was collected by the Museum of Liverpool to help capture local people’s experiences of the pandemic.
