This week, our Muslim colleagues have been celebrating Eid-ul-Adha, which is one of the highlights of the Islamic calendar. This is the second year that the festival, which marks the end of Hajj, has been affected by the pandemic. Regular blog readers will know that I’ve commented often on the impact of the pandemic on preventing people living their lives as normal, but it’s important to appreciate the disruption to people’s religious and cultural lives too. The festival began at the start of this week and will end this evening, so best wishes to all those celebrating this evening. Eid Mubarak!
