Omani blogger Zaid Al Saidi has a few questions about Eid.

دائما و في كل عيد أسأل نفسي لماذا يفرح الناس أو يتظاهرون بالفرح يوم العيد ، ماذا يميز العيد ؟ و لماذا لا نفرح بطول أيام السنة ؟
Every Eid I ask myself why do people celebrate Eid and why are they happy with the occasion. What distinguishes Eid? Why can’t we be happy every day of the year?

Osama, from the UAE, too is celebrating Eid, which has opened his eyes to a new practise.

الكل يريد أن ينال نصيبه من كعكعة العيد….
محلات الخياطة….
محال بيع الخضار والفاكهة….
معارض الشكولاتة و الحلويات…
حتى الحلاق..قرر أن يضاعف أجره بدون إنذار…و فوق كل ذلك طلب بخشيشا!!
Everyone wants his share from the Eid cake…the tailor..the grocer..the chocolate and candy stores..even the barber. He has increased his fees without prior warning. Add to this, he also asks for his tip!!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
