When the holy day of Eid Al-kbir (also Eid al-Addha) coincided with the beggining of the christian year of 2007, Marrakesh turned into itself and muslims came out into the streets to honour Ibrahim, who promised to sacrifice his own son when God asked him to. In this sacrificing day, millions of lambs were beheaded in Morocco.While crossing over the Mellah (old jewish quarter) the heads of lambs were grinning morbidly inside the flames while figures came out of the luminous mist. Part of the celebration includes sharing the animal with poor people.
