Islamic Holidays in Northern Iraq

This is part 3 of our episodes focusing on holidays! We tackled American holidays (we’re good at those!), Newroz (you just get swept up in in!), and now we’re attempting to explain the Islamic holidays.

Disclaimer: We are not Muslim and while we did some research online, we certainly didn’t try to cover everything. This is more an introduction and an explanation of how these holidays affected our daily lives in Iraq. (Please don’t get mad at us!) 

Please contact us with questions at or discover how you can go and teach in Iraq too!
