Ramadan holidays and fireworks

BOOM! BOOM!

I nearly jumped out of my skin. BOOM! BOOM! My father rushed out of the house.

“What’s going on?” I asked Mom. The front door opened and Dad came in. “Fireworks!” he said. “because of Eid”.

I had finished my dinner and was lying peacefully on the sofa, watching TV. Dad and Mom were in the dining room, chatting. We ran to the pool side and saw fireworks being blasted on the sky outside the compound. There were yells of excitement. I climbed on the top of the slide, which leads into the swimming pool and sat there watching. After sometime fireworks stopped and there was peace all around, we quietly went back home.

Dad’s Eid holidays have finally ended. I just wish he had a few more holidays. It’s more fun when he is around the house.
