Countdown Calendar

Ramadan Countdown Calendar

One month ago, at the end of September, I spotted shelves of Christmas goodies - decorations and lights - for sale. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera (or mobile phone) on me because I think this was a personal record for spotting of inappropriately early Christmas marketting.

Anyhow it was Eid ul-Fitr, the Islamic holiday at the end of Ramadan this week and I spotted these countdown calendars on sale. This is something I would have thought was inappropriate for a month of fasting: every day you open a window and help yourself to a chocolate.  What next? A countdown calendar for Christians to have a choc-a-day while fasting over Lent?
