Do you make wishes on a new moon?
It will be a new moon in 15 minutes in my time zone. It's also a day of Saint Nicolas today. I am going to visualize my wishes in details. Hope they will come true 😇

Hi @Aud:)
Today, we stayed tuned for the new moon but it didn’t rise as we are fasting Ramadan and the new crescent 🌙 will declare the end of Ramadan and the beginning of Eid”feast”.
Anyway, yes, it Isa religions habit to pray when the new crescent appears.
I wish the absolute happiness for me and my family.

Not really, Aud, no. But I found what you said interesting 🤔
The Islamic/ Arabic calendar is based on the lunar system though. We observe the new crescent at the end of every month on the day 29th and if we couldn’t observe it we complete 30 days of that month and a new month begins the next day automatically. Arabic months consist on either 29 or 30 days, so we have 354/355 days a year.

If we have a special occasion that starts at the beginning of an Islamic month like Ramadan or Eid Al-Fitr, in this case we do wish each other a blessed Ramadan/ Eid. Otherwise the new crescent 🌙 isn’t normally an occasion to congratulate each other because it’s just the beginning of a new month 🍀

Thanks :)

Here are two fun excerpts I found online:

"The New Moon provides us with this magical timing, so that we may create new opportunities for ourselves. We are encouraged to dream up our most ultimate needs and private desires. So go ahead and create your fantasy. Dream the impossible dream. Make a wish."

“New moons are for fresh starts, so if you’re going to do a drastic haircut that would be the better option,” she says. “Or do it when the moon is waxing, in the days that follow a new moon.”

Hi, Deb and NADA! :)
I wish all your dreams come true, too :)

Deb, I cut my son's hair tonight. I didn't do it intentionally for the new moon, it just happened:)

Hi, Aud :)

I've never done it, but I've heard of the practice~very intriguing! I've also heard of women (and maybe men) cutting their hair around the new moon. In any case, may your dreams come true! 😇😇
