The holy month of Ramadan is in its last phase and with that, the bells and whistles of Eid have already started to ring. Every year, the two Eid days bring occasions of festivities and celebrations for the Muslims across the world. In Bangladesh, the culture of Eid is very outgoing right from shopping to visiting neighbors and relatives on Eid day. But what about introverts?
The outgoing celebratory nature of the day makes it a problematic affair for introverts. Most introverts don’t enjoy the crowded occasion or the familial obligations that come with them. But should that stop them from celebrating Eid? Not at all. In fact, here are some effective ways to make Eid a one-of-a-kind merriment for the introverts out there.
9 Creative and Positive Ways to Spend Eid at Home
Watching a Movie
Movies are like an escape from reality. A good movie can take the viewer on a trip that will last long after it is over. So what better way to celebrate than going on a binge-watch marathon? Platforms like Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Videos can be a great place to discover new and classic titles. It's also a good time to get on a new series and finish a few seasons in the vacation. In short, it’s the perfect solitary getaway from the hustle and bustle of Eid celebrations.
Read a Book
Not into movies or shows? How about picking up a book instead? You can spend some quality time on the bookstore cafes near your home. Introverts are generally inclined to read books of all kinds and genres. It's not like one has to be a book nerd to get into the hobby. Just pick something up and give it a go.
Reading a story is like getting transported into its world. A solitary Eid can become instantly better if there are ample stories to dive into. And if fiction doesn’t cut it, go for self-help books. Who said Eid can’t be both fun and productive at the same time?
Fine Dine at Home
Eid is a grand occasion of food celebrations. Just look around in South Asian culture and it becomes apparent how much food makes up Eid. As an introvert, one should not miss out on the food experience of the occasion. There are tons of orders in options thanks to applications like Foodpanda, Hungrynaki, and Pathao Foods. There really is nothing like some alone time with good food.
Try Out a New Recipe
Many people love to cook. And it can be a great alternative to ordering in. In the festivities of Eid, why not try a hand at cooking? Other than the obvious fact that it lets a person spend some quality alone time, cooking can also be a great stress reliever. Plus the sense of accomplishment brought through a great dish can be well worth the effort.
