Homecoming on Eid
Eid Mubarak to all those who celebrate! In Indonesia, Eid is a moment where you pack up all your stuff and go back home to the places where you originally came from. Or, for children, back to their grandparents’ villages. This year, just like last year, I went back to Sidoarjo (somewhere in East Java) to my grandma’s house from my father’s side. On the second day of Eid, though, we went to a gathering with family from my mother’s side, and this is what a cousin and I did as we grew a bit too bored.
