so seliba is the local word for Tabaski, which is kind of celebrated like a Muslim Christmas: everyone gives over zealous and unnecessary greetings that take up so much time you end up resenting everyone later on for it; there is so much food you don't know what to do with yourself; children are handed ridiculous amounts of candy and then scolded for going nuts; people dress up and spill palm wine all over themselves; goats are beheaded, cleaned and their skins are used just hours later to pray facing east... just like Christmas, right?

these were delicious.
