Fete du Mouton is a Muslim holiday celebrated roughly 70 days after the end of Ramadan, the once-a-year fast for Muslims. The day commemorates Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son to God; however, God provided a sheep (“mouton” in French!) to be sacrificed instead.
Thus, Cameroonians do what they do best today: eat good food i.e. sheep! The festivities last through tomorrow, so my kitchen will rest untouched the next couple days while I have a handful of houses to share meals with!
