Eid greetings from myself - and Mickey Mouse!

Artwork by Tarek Chemaly
Here it is! "May it be repeated on you" - something I love about Arabic greetings, they always anticipate the future... Hey even "good night" becomes "may you wake up well"! So with this I send you the best greetings to you and yours for the Eid.
Below is a Mickey Mouse from the namesake magazine dating back to 1963 (also bringing you wishes):
And last but not least, a painting from Al Rih magazine dating back to 1962 about how the Eid was in Beirut with swings, merchants, kids, and fun in spades!
