The month of Ramadan is a deeply spiritual month to all Muslims. It is a time of great reflection of what Islam is about, compassion and charity. It is also a time for affirming a sense of identity amongst workmates, friends and the community. ‘Chand Raat’ or the ‘night of the moon’ is an exuberant occasion marking the end of Ramadan and the start of new month of Shawwal which brings Eid-ul- Fitr on the first day of the month. Pakistani Canadian Cultural Association (PCCA) is arranging 100 + stalls of businesses selling and promoting, fashion, jewelry, electronics, photography, art & scriptures, toys, henna painting etc. You will also enjoy the typical Pakistani outdoor food street to open iftar with family and friends.
The lower mainland residents will experience the true feeling of a traditional Meena baazar from back home where people go for last minute shopping of jewelry, clothes, shoes and Heena. PCCA would like to extend special thanks to all the sponsors for the event and the great prizes they are offering for the community during the event. We are proud that today, due to tireless efforts of PCCA BC volunteers over several years, Canadian residents of Islamic faith have a secure and significant recognition and a place in the multicultural society of our nation – a place where we are able to express our cultures and practice our faith with a sense of Security and freedom.
Mega Chand Raat (Eid Festival) shows a great example to the rest of the world how people from various nations including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Fiji and from other countries and communities came together leaving their difference behind, embrace each other and enjoy the occasion together under one roof.
The festivities of Chand Raat Mela is not only to celebrate ending of fasting & holy month of Ramadan of Muslims but we also see a sense of harmony among people from different faith, color and race. Our most treasured strength is the diversity of cultures that each of us bring into this country to create this great mosaic we call "multiculturalism".
