This isn't really related to weddings but thought you could all help me. My FI's family is muslim and I am of christian background.
I am very organized by nature and am finding it frustrating when my FI tells me that certain muslim celebratory events are taking place last minute. For example, it is EID on Sunday and he only told me this last night.
I realize it goes according to the Lunar calendar and its related to Ramadan as well but how did he not know this before last night????
I expressed my frustration to him but he interpreted it as me not wanting to participate which is NOT the case. I adore his family and love learning about his traditions and taking part of it. I just wish I knew ahead of time because now I've had to cancel on my own mother as we had planned to have lunch on Sunday together.
