This is the day when I do not step foot outside the house as the streets literally run with blood. The slaughter takes place in the persons home by a religious person who offers prayers for the sheep while cutting it's throat!
Later in the day there will be various make shift fires set up in the streets. People then will bring the head of the sheep and have it cooked on these fires. Sheep brains are a delicacy in the Muslim world. This then causes a horrid stench in the air.
Sorry if this has spoilt your Breakfast but felt it was of interest on a cultural basis.
Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.
