Aidilfitri gave different meaning to different people. Most people thinks eid is the day where they have a chance to do annual family meeting. Some people takes eid as a sad day for them because of a certain family incidents and some people just, take eid like a normal day, same with any other day.
Aidilfitri for me, gave a different meaning throughout my journey through ages. I remember back when I was a kid, Aidilfitri is so much fun, a day to meet other cousin which is on the same age as me. A day to collect all the duit raya as much as possible, and also a day to meet my beloved late grandmother. Everything felt so perfect on that day, so much fun.
Aidilfitri is all fun and enjoying until 2006, All the fun and excitement faded when my beloved late grandmother passed away.I was 18 years. She is one of the main reason why Aidilfitri is so much fun before and before I know it, she passed away, leaving all her memories to me. Aidilfitri changes after that, there's no much fun when I turn 19, and even now, in the age of 20. The raya mood is somehow,didn't exist. Aidilfitri for me, is an annual family meeting day, just like that.
I didn't know about what will happen to me this Aidilfitri and future Aidilfitri, but a person once told me,
"raya ni best time kita budak2, bosan pada masa remaja dan separa dewasa, tapi kemudian jadi indah bile kita dah kahwin dan ada cahayamata. Selepas itu, terpulanglah pada kita sendiri nak menjadikan aidifitri pada masa depan indah atau tidak, sebab kita yang perlu shape kemeriahan raya itu dalam keluarga kita sendiri"
SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI
Maaf Zahir dan Batin
