A Kiswahili saying meaning: Don’t select a mate during Eid
Some sober relationship advise there. Eid is the ‘breaking fast’ festival at the close of Ramadan. There’s a lot of feasting, eating, making merry. Everybody is happy and kind and shows off their best from clothing to character.
This simply means, choose your mate when the chips are down, or when sober-minded for you’ll see their true nature and vise versa! This can also be applied to all types of relationships, not just romantical ones … 😉
