Melaka State Hari Raya Open house recently…
The culture of visiting each other during religious celebration is common in Malaysia. Starting from a family houses to nearest neighbor around the house, friends outside the area to the bigger state or national open houses.
During Eidul Fitri, especially during first 3 day of it, generally every Malay / Muslim houses are open to visitors. At least a variety of biscuit will be served at the table.
Then until end of the month, offices, organization, political leaders will organize the term of ‘open houses’. Means everybody are invited for the feast. No need invitation card. The host will provide all the food and drinks.
For offices, it will encourage team spirit with pot luck practice, for political leaders this is the opportunity to meet and unite people in the community. The spirit of unity is more important than the food itself….
