E-Souk

According to Jeune Afrique, a young Moroccan entrepreneur named Nabil Alami (no relation) has started an online site where the faithful can purchase live lambs for the sacrificial rites of Eid. Compare weights, sizes, and colors, without having to trek to the souk and deal with the smells and sounds of hundreds of bleating sheep. Plus, you can choose your delivery date, which means you don’t have to keep, feed, and clean after the animal for the days leading up to the feast. Demand was so high that the farm he had contracted with sold out. Now he wants to expand his business to include celebrations for weddings and births, etc.

Or, you know, you can just donate the Eid money to charity.
