Bengali Christians have been celebrating the ‘Boro Din’ through payesh and plum cake, and mangshor bhat in the afternoon in an act of creolization forever. The term ‘Boro Din’ or Big Day denotes a monumental event in the calendar as does Selamat Hari Natal for Christians in the Nusantara. ‘Hari’ again denotes the big day in Bahasa Indonesia, which is also deployed for Eid.
Christmas for Copts and Levantine Arabs is Eid as well.
Cultures share common traits, which render humanity richer.
From Payesh to Muklabia to Kueh, do soak in the Joy.
