This photo was taken at my host families' house in Morocco during the 2011 Leid Mqqurn. On the tenth day of the last month of the year, the Islamic world celebrates its yearly sacrificial feast. In Morocco it is known as "the great feast." It is the central feast in Islam, derived from the feast of the atonement, Abraham's substitute sacrifice. In the photos my host father has just slaughtered the sheep and the entire family begins to help with the feast preparations.
