According to the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) Ramadan starts Wednesday October 5th. Some communities, as well as individuals, decided to follow suit with most Arab countries and start the fast Tuesday, so did I. Ramadan day 1 is done, I went out to dinner with a friend who also decided to fast, The Olive Garden is a far cry from a homecooked meal enjoyed with family and loved ones. Talking about heartbreak over chicken parmigiana on the first day of Ramadan is just not right.. Ramadan stateside is just like any other time of the year.

Maybe I'll write a more appropriate Ramadan post later in the month :) Happy Ramadan everyone.
