Oh, and this is also the end (the day after, I think) of the second Eid celebration , Eid Al-Adha, a commemoration of Abraham's willingness to honor God by slaughtering his own son, but then not having to do it. Muslims everywhere celebrate the day by not killing their children and by slaughtering various sheep of sufficient quality. It's nothing to us, but it could be very hard on Ewe.
