Choti eid is kinda, sorta special. Scratch that, it’s really special. After a whole month of steadfastness, rozay, bhook, piyas and shaitan in the jail – everybody is ready to be a glutton and let loose. Saiwayyan, some halwa poori, getting mehndi and chooriyan and indulging in some cousin chilling / family bonding is real with every Pakistani ever. Different things are special for different people but in the end, it’s about spreading love.
Just in time for Eid, we teamed up with Cadbury Dairy Milk to explore our childhood memories of mithaas filled Eids. First, we asked team MangoBaaz to share their favorite Eid memories.
Ali Gul was upset ke ab eidi lenay ki deni perh jati hai.
Biya reaaaaaally enjoyed casual chilling with her cousins and being out all night this one time.
Iman and her mama had a secret tradition
Naveed talked about his strong kurta game.
Haadia shared a very smallpox-y story from her childhood that she still laughs about.
Ather loves hanging with his Hindu friend.
Sinwan admitted to her love affair with saiwayyan.
Shah likes being presentable.
Sajeer loves how her family celebrated Eid, especially with her mixed roots.
Daniyal just needs an excuse for some bear hugs from abbu ji.
Alveena just does it for the keema.
Arslan reminisced about being the annoying kid who wouldn’t let anyone sleep.
Then we asked you wonderful people, and the messages poured in with your favorite memories
Playing games without load shedding – hell yea.
