Okay everyone, mubarak ho, we made it through Ramzan. Pat yourself on the back. All the hangry spells, all the thirst and all the overeating at iftaaris has finally come to an end. Now, we reward ourselves – that’s right, it’s Eid. That time of the year where we sit back, reflect on the past month, celebrate with our family and loved ones. And also, a time where we get to be laaaaaaaazy.
Here’s what it looks like:
1. Falling right back to sleep mid day after Eid Ki Namaz, eating some saavian and getting some Eidi.
You know that feeling of waking up in the middle of the night, knowing you have a couple of more hours of bliss? Welcome to Lazy Eid. Just think about coming home and collapsing right back into bed. Ameeeeeen, know what I mean?
2. You can change into pajamas once all your guests have left. Or just lounge around in your shalwar because it’s so comfortable.
This is especially satisfying for those of us who hate to get dolled up in the morning, specifically on your day off. Kya hai yaaaar, baad mein filter laga doun gii – let me sleep.
3. You can order in food rather than go out to eat.
Don’t want to put in the effort of slaving away in the kitchen all day? Or seeing your Ami Jaan freak out about not having enough food for everyone? Chilll Karein. Just order something through Foodpanda so you can continue being lazy.
4. You can binge watch ALLL the shows you’ve been meaning to binge watch.
Uffff, just think, you’re in your food coma, half asleep and all your cousins are over – that only calls for one thing. It’s time to binge, baby! Game of Thrones, House of Cards or whatever might be on TV? Whatever your lazy heart desires.
5. You can Skype with your family members and friends from all around the world, right from the comfort of your couch.
It is the 21st century after all! Laying around on the couch and skyping with your cousins who are working abroad or talking on the phone with your Khala in Dubai is the best way to keep in touch with the ones you love on Eid. Just look at the CEO of Foodpanda – he made phone calls to all of his customers, wishing them Eid Mubarak. Goals.
Btw, not kidding about the CEO thing. Check out #FPEidSurprise to see the fun surprises Foodpanda has been dishing out (see what I did there?)
6. You can use your free time to catch up on work, ghar ke kaam etc etc
Productive lazy Eid! (Ok just move on to the next point)
7. Lolsy jk, you know you can just sit back, relax and just keep scrolling through your newsfeed without any guilt.
Gotcha there, didn’t I? Hehe
Unless you celebrate the second and third days of Eid just as the first, the rest of Eid break is perfect for lazing about and not worrying about work.
8. You can eat your way through pretty much anything. WHENEVER. YOU. WANT.
Missed eating during the day? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Celebrate going back to your regular pre-ramazan appetite by ordering in tons and tons of food all day, courtesy of Foodpanda. Remember that whole not moving thing? We were serious.
9. And you can also have chai literally all day long.
It might take a bit getting used to, but you finally get to eat at normal times of the day again. Know what that means? Having chai alll day. Meeting family? Chai. Seeing friends? Chai. Drinking chai? Chai. Pakistani hai hum, chai runs in our veins.
10. And sleep, literally all day long.
Lazy is a lifestyle, people. Yaad rakhna.
11. Not having to cook for the next week.
Thanks to Ami and your never ending appetite, you have now got more than enough food to last for the rest of the month, mA mA, iA iA.
12. Having time to yourself.
Once everything is said and done and all the craziness of the day has subsided, sitting back and relaxing with some quality time to yourself is one of the best parts about being lazy on Eid.
13. Enjoying lazy Eid for what it is.
The lazy moments of Eid are the best when you’re in between all the madness of celebrating with your loved ones. Be lazy in your own home with your own people and enjoy a good old fashioned lazy Eid. Love you and Eid Mubarak!
