1,400 years ago an Arab died at the hands of another Arab. Since then, every year the country of Iran goes into mourning for 29 days. Remember sineh zani, ghammeh zani, to sar zani?!! Makes a lot of sense ha. So, I say lets reverse this trend.
Muharram 2009 started today. As the 1980’s Kool & the Gang disco song says: “Ce—–le-brate good times come on” repeat 3 times.
There’s a party goin’ on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times, and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate your party with you
Of course, we should all try to celebrate Ashura which is on the 7th of January. I am working on throwing a huge belated Ashura party on Friday Jan 8th in LA. Tune in. More details coming up.
