A time for joyous celebrations, forgiveness, strengthening family ties and rekindling friendship – the festive season of Hari Raya Aidilfitri is finally here! After a month of fasting, Hari Raya marks the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadhan. For sure, many are looking forward to celebrating the blissful occasion in the grandest fashion possible.
As we continue to recover from the pandemic of Covid-19, Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2021 will be celebrated under unique circumstances. As the Prime Minister recently announced, the whole country would go under the Movement Control Order (MCO) from 12 May to 7 June. While balik kampung and Raya open houses are not allowed, you can still enjoy the Raya festive at home!
Tips for Celebrating Raya at Home
Even though we celebrate this year’s Raya in a slightly different atmosphere – be it online or offline – let’s make it a memorable one! Here are some fun ways to celebrate Hari Raya at home this year.
Dress Your Best
Shine or rain, lockdown or not, getting dress up is a must during Hari Raya. Get all decked out in your Raya outfits – be it baju kurung, baju Melayu or other traditional clothes – like how you would do every year during Hari Raya, even if you will be celebrating at home. Despite being away from your loved ones, you can still shop together (virtually, of course) and get matching outfits.
Indulge in Yummy Raya Food
Nothing screams Hari Raya more than feasting on delicious traditional Malay food, like ketupat, rendang, lemang, satay, and assorted kuih raya! Raya dishes and delicacies are perhaps the most vital part of the Raya celebration. It does not matter if you are staying with a big family, just your spouse or even alone – eating good food will definitely bring the Raya spirit into your home.
If you do not feel like cooking or traditional food is not really your cup of tea, you can always opt for pizzas. With Lebaran Set from Domino's Pizza, you can indulge in delicious pizza with your loved ones, even on Hari Raya!
Video Call with Family and Friends
Thanks to Covid-19, all of us have become more tech-savvy. Even though Raya visit is permitted on the first day of Raya, it is only applicable for those staying in the same district. With technology, now you can bridge the physical distance and do some virtual Raya visits! Plus, Raya is all about strengthening and maintaining relationships with family and friends. Even if you are separated from your family and loved ones because of the MCO, you can reunite with them via video calls on Hari Raya.
Send Duit Raya
If there is one thing that kids (or even adults) look forward to every Raya, it is the tradition of receiving duit raya in fancy sampul raya. As Raya gatherings are not allowed this time around, there are some creative ways to send duit raya to young ones and elderlies. Several banks have come out with easy options for you to send it via bank transfer. Apart from a bank transfer, you can also give duit raya with convenience via an e-wallet. Perhaps during this period, it is also a good time to send duit raya to your relatives or friends who might need it, especially those affected by the pandemic.
Another alternative to giving duit raya is to send good food to your loved ones. With Domino's Kasih & Piza campaign, you can surprise your family and friends with a wholesome pizza set. Not only that, but it also comes with an exclusive greeting card so you can include a thoughtful message to them. Apart from your loved ones, you can also send a variety of Kasih & Piza set meals to any charity home, orphanage or old folks home. It certainly will brighten up their day and putting big smiles on their face during Hari Raya.
Enjoy Domino’s Pizza with Family and Friends
Raya celebration at home simply means more time with family – or housemates, if you are staying with friends. As Raya visits are restricted, you would not have to rush over to relatives’ houses and have more time to chill at home. Since everyone is at home, why not order some delicious Raya pizza from Domino’s Malaysia? You can dig in while watching iconic Malay films or even binge-watch Netflix!
Suppose you are not staying with family and loved ones during the joyous festive season. In that case, you still can show your thoughts and wish them well on Hari Raya by sending some Raya pizza deals, Lebaran Set from Domino's Pizza for your family to enjoy.
