Editor's note: Selamat Hari Raya!
If you're reading this, you're either a Muslim scrambling to buy kuih and new clothes for Hari Raya, or a non-Muslim merely looking forward to the long weekend ahead...
The wonderful thing about being from a multi-racial country like Singapore is everybody gets into the fun of the festivals.
When it’s Chinese New Year, even if you’re a non-Chinese, going to Chinatown and taking in the sight of preparations is a joy itself. Likewise, when it’s Deepavali, it doesn’t matter if you’re celebrating or not, getting a hand covered in henna just seems like a great way to spend 5 bucks!
Hence, with Hari Raya, it is just plain good old fun to get into the spirit of things and check out what’s in store for Raya around the Island.
Ever wondered the significance of the festival, or what to wear and gift to your Muslim peers? Well, our writers share with us a number of articles on the colourful festival. Do be sure to catch The Outsider’s Guide to Hari Raya Puasa , and many such interesting articles throughout the week.
Selamat Hari Raya, dear readers.
